You're going to destroy yourself with 2 hours of daily running unless you're already in very good shape. And judging by how many runners get injured, probably even if you're already in very good...

Your pecs aren't going to turn into moobs in a direct/literal sense, though I understand what you're saying.

If anything, maybe try to emphasize incline variants more than flat/decline. Then try to...
