First triathlon - can I cross train?

Question • 2 answers

Agree with WIll, cross training and Tri training can go well together, the important part is to build up gradually and ensure that you do have REST days. It is easy to forego these if u feel behind with plan, but that generally only results in overtraining...

I dont understand the challenge mate.

Question • 2 answers

"average pace of 10 min mile" - i dont understand this mate.. does it mean run a mile at an average pace in 10 min mate?

Newest answer

I'm not sure I understand the misunderstanding. If you can run a mile in less than ten min you complete. If you can run three miles in less than thirty minutes you complete. Total minutes divided by miles equal ten or less then complete.

Does age factor into the times?

Question • 1 answer

The Boston Marathon has qualifying times, based on gender and age, it seems unrealistic to have the same qualifying time for all ages.

Newest answer

I agree it is strange, both London and New York take age into consideration as well. But Chicago this year opted for a different, one-size-fits-all strategy for some reason. Don't know why...but next year (entry is now closed) qualification might change a...

Question • 2 answers

Hello, I'm thinking of starting Insanity and incorporating it in my fitness routine. I'm a runner and run daily with my dog in the early morning. Shall I do Insanity before or after the run? I am not fond of exercising in the evening so early mornings are i...

Another thought would be to look into the FIRST training method that is in the book run  less run faster. It breaks down a schedule that would work cross training like insanity in to it. I am back to working on base miles because of an injury, but in a coup...
