    I've heard that running anything over 6 miles your body goes from burning fat to muscle.

    also it deals with length of cardio.. I've always stuck by the notion that no more than 40 minutes of jogging should be done.

    It all depends on your body type...

    If you have muscle to burn or if your fat and you want to turn it into muscle...

    Either way you have to try it to see if it works for you.
