ROLLER SKI AND RUNNING

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...

Re: Dry land training

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...

Re: Dry land training

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 ...

Re: Dry land training

Here is another question for you Folks -- it is a running training technique to do both for sprinting and some easier running while pulling a tire behind you. Anyone ever try this with roller skis? The V2 skis that I have work well on a crushed gravel path and I already use the "speed reducers&...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Hey you didn't mention shoveling your driveway. That's a good workout too! Enjoy the spring and summer and congrats on the amount of snow and skiing.

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Yep -- been getting a couple sessions in a week. But where I live the snow is the anomaly unfortunately. Having said that, I really do enjoy the roller skiing and the workout. Anything I can do that fits into the "out the back door" category is OK by me.

Re: New racing technique

Seems logical to me. Most of us are probably runners anyhow so why not run on the skis?

Re: Is there something that is slippery on grass?

Well -- pushed the wrong button.. sorry about that. Yeah my CAT skis worked well on dry grass. Not so hot on wet grass or if it was freshly mowed -- but definitely worked well on the right grass surface. They worked great on artificial turf.

Re: Training philosophy

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...

Re: Training philosophy

I think it also varies depending upon whether you are doing the same exercise discipline most of the time, or if you have a variety. I have found that with a variety of activities I can handle relatively intense workouts more frequently and not get rundown or hurt. I wouldn't say that if I was still...
