Triathlon Training: 4 Mile Run + 5 Mile Bike + Bilateral Breathing Advice by Jeff Irvin Patient Expert Posted Mon 20 Jul 2009 11:24pm Hello everyone!

I have been tinkering with my breathing during my swimming - which is probably stupid considering my Tri is less than 2 weeks away! But he posted this ... Read on »
Triathlon Training Day 11 & 12: Stength Training + 4 Mile Run by Jeff Irvin Patient Expert Posted Thu 30 Apr 2009 11:30pm Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I had a LOOONGG day working and got my workout in and hit the sack. Yesterday was a little different for me. I wanted to go cycling but it was dark by the time I got home. I also wanted to watch the "Biggest Loser" that I DVR'd a couple of days ago. So, I brought my dumbbells into the Family room and did about 40 ... Read on »
Training Update Week 33: Wherein I conquer a twenty mile long run, the common cold and set a new PR for the mile. by JayDub R. Posted Thu 19 Aug 2010 12:00am The Cross Training I'm starting to really love swimming. This was the perfect way to end a hard working week last Friday.

Running 100 miles on 4 miles per day training runs. by Ken C. Patient Expert Posted Fri 23 Jan 2009 5:05pm Lately, I have almost given my running a back seat. Oh, I still get a run in 5 days a week, but 4-5 miles is all I have been getting per day. I fear my overall endurance has slid off a little, but I am knocking off these 4 milers like they were nothing. Makes me wonder if I would do well in a 5K. (SLAP ME!!) That's how I ended up with some pesky sh ... Read on »

Rethinking the 20 mile marathon training run by Amy H. Patient Expert Posted Fri 17 Oct 2008 9:13pm At the heart of marathon training for the past several decades has been the 20-mile run. Regarded as the must-run distance before showing up on marathon day, completing the 20 miler has become the cardinal rule to “get in.” I’ve experimented with lots of 20-mile combos in preparing for different marathons.   I’ve “got in” 1 x, and 2 x, and ...

1/2 Marathon Training: 3.1 Mile Run + Programming Notes by Jeff Irvin Patient Expert Posted Fri 09 Oct 2009 10:02pm I woke up today and my back was feeling so much better. I did some more intense stretching, ala P90X warm-ups, and actually had a little sweat going before stepping outside and this really made me feel good! According to the weather report we were supposed to have had a cold front move through last night and the humidity was to be drastically ... Read on »

Rode the Expresso Bike for 7.4 Miles as Cross Training by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Fri 25 Jan 2013 12:00am Today is a non-running day, and I thought I'd go to the community gym and ride the Expresso bike as cross training. I rode that bike for the first time on Wednesday. My cross training is supposed to be restful, but I found today that I pushed quite hard trying to go as fast through the courses as I could. When I finished I was huffing and puffin ... Read on »
