I have mentioned on this forum before how much I think/know that roller skiing has been an outstanding addition to my running/racing. Last night was another proof to me that training works great together. As I get older, and my friends who have been excellent runners and racers most of their lives c...
I did the tire drag around on a few workouts now and it works just fine. I also agree that the added benefit is on those long steep hills that I would have to walk down, are now controllable with the tire doing the extra drag along with the speed reducers. So for what it is worth -- an excellent wor...
The one I use for running/hiking training is a 16 inch tire. I put an eye bolt through the middle part of the tread and then attach a lanyard that I attach to a carabineer around a waste belt. Usually I try to find ways to work out that give a nice workout in a short period of time. That definitely ...

Well at this point in my life I have found that doing the shorter, higher intensity works best. However -- I never do the same discipline in a row. So maybe one day it is a run, next day some dry land training, etc... Now you have a guy like Galen Rupp,the runner,cranking out 140 miles a week of run...
