Thanks
ok for the record.. Muscle CAN NOt turn to fat major misconception.. basicly all that happened is your muscles got out of shape and cellular size decreased along with strength.. you still have the same amount of cells, no change there and you will be surprised how quickly they bounce back . Cardio will help I also suggest adding some weight training.. low weights high reps decent speed kinda like a cardio weight work out.. try adding ankle and wrist weights when you run maybe a weight belt not alot of weight just 2-5 pounds you'll notice a huge difference when your not wearing them after a work out.. will build up speed as well..
