Count Your Steps

So my focus this week was stride frequency.  Stride frequency is just one factor in the speed equation (speed = stride length x stride frequency).  When I began distance running, I read that the elite distance runners had a cadence of 90-95 footstrikes/minute.  As I started doing longer runs, I worked to maintain a 90 cadence, so now a 90 cadence is pretty much a given.  Now, 90 isn't the "right" cadence, but it is a decent target cadence for most runners. I’m trying to bump that number up a little bit (explanation below), so this week I worked on quick turnover.

 

Ironman Tips

Note:  This post was written in 2007, my last season racing as a professional.

There are a lot of folks planning on doing an IM this season.  I came up with a list of tips that some of you may find helpful.  I was surprised that I only came up with 6, but, at least from my experience, I cannot think of any more.    So here are my 6 tips for a successful IM experience (by the way, the race is only a small part of the experience).

Age Group Perspective on 70.3 - by Robin Trotman

All of us race, participate, or train for different reasons.  After several years of racing, my wife Jill as a spectator/supporter and me as a delusional age grouper, we have made some interesting observations.  We thought that it might just be helpful to share these, in the context of our recent experience in my first half ironman.  Just to give folks something to chew on and maybe even remember at their next race.
