Re: Too hilly to recover!

Thanks Tinman Sounds like a resounding no to this hill....definitely not being a wimp by driving somewhere flat or getting on the treadmill. I'm a member of a gym so that is an option, not attractive in that I've always really loved using my running as transport but perhaps I need to choose is it tr...

Re: Too hilly to recover!

Thanks for both your replies I'd not thought about cycling down....definitely, that might be easier for my brain to accept, feel like a bit of a wet lettuce driving down the hill but cycling hmmmm. I'd never considered the downhill to be the problem, I thought it was the steep incline basically been...

Too hilly to recover!

Hi All I've recently moved to the top of a hill, drops 1000ft in between 2-3 miles in every direction. My problem is I've got constant heavy legs and workouts are suffering, I have been at it 3 months and am a very experienced runner so really don't want to drive to the bottom of the hill on easy da...

Re: My comeback training!

So the last 2 weeks! Week 15 This week got off to a good start after my race, but got a serious dose of laziness/fatigue at the weekend and didn't run a step. Also included a tempo on the treadmill, I used the same treadmill,speed and settings as in week 4, and similar to then I don't think it's acc...

Re: Muscle fiber type and training

I've been reading Tinmans fibre type article in running times....really interesting,and supports my findings that's I've ran my best when just doing mileage and taking it "less serious" because I wasn't doing hard sessions. Quick question on Tinmans calculator what %of VO2max is moderate?i know temp...

Re: My comeback training!

On reflection in the 10 days prior to the race I did 7.5 miles at 5k pace or faster and nothing in the stamina zone tinman talks about,perhaps because I'm slow twitch and mileage dependent the vo2 work killed me off...really hard to get the balance right.

Re: Cycling Training, Racing, Physiology, and Racing Tactics

Hi Tinman, Im no cycling expert but I can assure you 420watts should be considerably quicker than 41.2kmph! You might like this thread on a cycling forum, involves some input from guys doing 50 minutes for 25 miles. about training composition, all on less that 10h a week. very interesting....you cou...

Re: Ryan Hall

I see,thankyou
On a different Ryan,Ryan Vail has on his blog his full 14 eek build up to nyc today,he ran 2.13,not what he was hoping for I don't think but that's the marathon....he uses 8*200m hills once or twice a week I presume to keep that snap in his ankles.

Re: Ryan Hall

Great thread....you'd think a guy at the top of the tree would be better advised....its a real shame...when you look at meb and Lagat who have ran amazingly into their late 30's whereas hall has struggled in his late 20's. Just wanted to ask Tinman for an eaxample workout for hall you think he has m...

Its all based on functional threshold power FTP which is the power that can be maintained for 50-70 minutes....cyclings equivalent of threshold speed. heres an example of how the total sress score of a workout is calculated. lets say a cyclist c...

Re: Day Off and Loss of Efficiency

I always feel hopeless after a day off however i had never attributed it to anything other than a bit of stiffness and fluid retention from the rest day, and assumed i could have avoided it if i did a little stretching or a couple of strides. I dont schedule days off for this reason, but occasionall...
