Sven nys quote from Bicycling (teaser about short podcast coming up)
You have to live 365 days a year for your sport. That helps a lot. Not just for a small period. You need to have the passion from day one until the last day.
INTO READER Qs
Know what? Gaining weight. From coming back from illness (severe weight loss) to generally losing too much weight training.
- give it time, body will return to ‘normal’ (ease into training)
- protein / calories in general need to come up but consider IN vs. OUT
- backing off training ie walking not running
- Liquid calories (dairy, peanut butter , white rice as easy to eat lots)
- watch starting with low cal / high nutrient density foods (ie. salad opener limits overall calories for some)
- Molly references milk (whole milk) beneficial for DOMS from study HERE
Vince M C. asks: I would love some down-to-earth advice on getting into interval training. I’ve always just tried to maintain a pace while running, but I’m aware that interval training will yield better results. But how does one establish intervals as a beginner?
- fartlek is the easiest way to start
- run/walk (not just for beginners)
- break normal route into chunks
- track – run straits, walk corners
- find a track workout or hill workout nearby
- find hills
Brandon asks: strength training in the off season why, how, when.
- should year round
- offseason good to start
- infographics on performance benefits of strength
