How would you try to gain weight mostly muscle mass on the side but also try to get your endurance up by running and will running stop you or defeat the purpose of trying to gain weight?

There are two types of muscle fibers in your body. One is fast acting and for short duration and strength. These are the ones that you build up for bulk. The other are slower twitch and long acting. These are your endurance fibers. If you work them both properly you can increase both but if you do a lot of running you will probably develop more of the long acting fibers and not get too much bulk out of it all. Look at Armstrong. He has very little muscle mass in the upper trunk because of all of his type II muscle fibers. He does have some bulk in the legs though, because he uses them when he rides.

High reps is mostly associated with endurance, and not so much with bulk.

Depends a bit on how you ride. If all you do are short sprints, then you won't get much endurance out of that. But the most common style of road bike riding is mostly endurance training.

endurance is an opinion.cross country or running can be very hard on your joints which can make it very hard (on top of the obvious strains like running)cycling can be gruling but is mostly legs.in my opinion swimming wins. imagine running 12 miles and taking a breath every 5 steps... well that's my swim practice.by the way i do all 3 sports and they are all difficult just in their own ways

Cardio equipment is one of those things that can be used for working on two major things; speed and endurance. If your looking for speed, run short distances but go at your maximum speed every time, and if your looking for endurance improvement, run longer and at medium speed!
