Re: Cycling and running

Hi All, Just a wee update. After my first full week cycling to and from work, I feel a little trashed. I am not used to cycling and I was really starting to think that I have made a big mistake getting rid of my car. My legs feel bloated and are fatigued in new places. I want to get leaner not bulki...

Cycling and running

Hi All, I have not posted for a while but I would not mind some feedback. I have switched to cycling to/from work including my lunch break (Got rid of my car).

Re: How to build up CV running?

Linus, From your feedback, I am a little concerned that you may be trying to run the reps too fast also. I say this because of the recovery time you feel you need between the reps. I also wonder if trying to run 1K initially for your reps might be a bit far straight away. I say this because you are ...

Re: Any advice to help my sick son who has districts tomorrow in cross country?

I totally agree and have noticed the same physical response myself. I always run sluggish following a complete day of not running. Even if not racing.
