competition for ultras vs. fast roadies/trackies by D Stumpus[_4_]
"Charlie Pendejo" wrote The thread over there is about strategy for the OP who placed the bet. My interest is, who do you reckon is better equipped for this: a young stud with a 10k PR of say 33 minutes or less, or a significantly slower ultra guy or gal with...

semi live coverage ... by rms[_2_]
My pick for 2nd place has dropped out already at 23 miles ... a moo no! Dang now I am only left with Anton Krupicka ( aka Jesus ) ... I'm rooting for Geoff Roes, but from his interview it was plain he was disconcerted at how intense Krupica has been training; not just guys out for a...

semi live coverage ... by Anthony[_2_]
Approaching the 24 hours cutoff. So far there are 93 finishers. Amazing race with a big course record to both 1st and 2nd places. I followed yesterday evening local time and when I went to sleep Anton Krupicka and Kilian Jornet had a 12-15 minute lead on Geoff Roes at about mile 62. Woke up and...

Opinions on this advice on stride rate? by Existential Angst
Awl -- What do y'all think of the following: If I had to give a single tip to someone undertaking a running program, it would be to periodically check your stride rate - you want to hit 45 footfalls in 15 seconds, or 180 per minute. Don't ask why, just know that you want to do this or...

Running without bouncing by [email protected]
This doesn't quite fit into the "stride rate" or "runners-bikers" threads, so: At 89 I'm not a runner, just a walker but.... I've experimented with jogging keeping the top of the head staying level -- at constant "altitude." This feels odd to me and maybe looks odd as one caterpillars forward. ...

ankle surgery by james

Runners vs. Bikers, Ponder This, Part Deux by D Stumpus[_4_]
I was talking to a good running buddy yesterday who has a neurological problem in one leg that keeps him from running. He was a solid runner: he got under 35:00 in the 10k and did a 17:45 5k at age 50. But now he can't run at all. He can bike, and does so avidly. The problem, as he told me,...
