Re: Question about calories and muscles

Captain, The first notion to dispel is that muscle mass, which would necessitate an increase in caloric requirements (and likely best achieved through a drop in running volume too), is the only way to gain strength. That is what dkg was saying when he got into the neurological component of strength....

Re: Leg Turnover

My first real extended training period on a treadmill was some time ago when deployed, it was a necessity for a good month+. On one particular treadmill I would use regularly, I was about .8 mph slower for the same effort (on Tempo runs). I would do a warm-up jog outside, in the area I was stationed...

Re: Athlete facing leg strength issues

DKG,

I sent you a PM.

Also, I wanted to ask to see how much lower-body strength training you have been able to handle in your sessions. Number of exercises, etc. Curious to see what has worked for you at your volume/mileage.

Re: Stamina vs. Endurance

No problem. In fact, Tom's example was right in-line with an old poster mathwiz1, who used it as a staple workout at one point. If I remember correctly mathwiz was a pretty solid guy, maybe up to 180-ish? But running close to 17-flat at some points! That's some pretty good stamina. http://www.therun...

Re: Early morning marathon - wake up time and nutrition

Great thread. I'm not 100% sure, but it seems that depending on when I run my morning workouts really determines if or how much I might need in terms of calories. I've been having some terrible, terrible Saturday morning workouts. The one difference that I noticed in comparison to say a Tuesday morn...

Re: Winter Base Building

Thank you also Tom and Kevin. It was something I thought would be good to have clarified for any less experienced or newer runners that might come across it.

Re: Winter Base Building

I could be wrong as I'm just making a guesstimate here, but I would be surprised if Tom was making Kevin's daily mileage more moderate pace, as opposed to keeping the workouts on the moderate side and simply increasing the frequency of rotation of workouts within the training cycle. Kevin had commen...

Re: Rotating shoes

I just realized an error in my reply above. I like the Altra's for easy runs, the Newtons' I have been disappointed with. It seems that right from the start in running in them I can feel like my right plantar fascia is getting pulled on a little and that if I'm not careful that I'll get a full on st...

Re: Rotating shoes

I inadvertently end up rotating shoes myself. Additionally, though I didn't plan to stock up, I have a nice little collection of shoes and actually have become pretty good at knowing what my body needs for a given day. A few weeks back it was the Asics GT2000. Then as horrible and icy weather came i...

Re: Athlete facing leg strength issues

Pavel is actually where Barry Ross borrowed his ideas from, wasn't sure if you knew the link there. I typically just feel more useful in general when I  keep deadlifts in my program. Plus, in the same vein as deadlifter and farmer Bob Peoples, I always felt it was a way of keeping a strong back and ...

Re: Athlete facing leg strength issues

That's funny, I was going to mention Pavel, and then Barry Ross's own usage, "Bearpowered",  but didn't go any further.
I'm familiar with the Livingstone book as well. I'm always reading in my personal time, and sometimes when I should be working...maybe like now!
