Training on treadmills

by Dr. Romanov-

No matter how much I dislike talking about tips, I have to do it now because there is no time to write a manual for treadmill running. I'll do it later as a separate chapter for one of the planned books. For now I would like to pretend that it is a short version of it. We prepared a video clip with Severin for our Wednesday's Video presentation, which, together with this article, will give you some insight into treadmill running.

Help Me, Help My Friend!

One way that I do this is to remember one person. This person happens to be a great friend of mine and…

AFA Falcon Groundspeed Triathlon - Post Race

Having done this triathlon last October, I pretty much knew what to expect coming into this morning. I ran through my race plan the night before and was pretty sure I had everything ready. I went to bed early and wasn't nervous at all, so I slept amazing. Apparently, I didn't set my alarm, but still managed to wake up around 6:10, so I still had plenty of time. I made a strawberry shake and brought an orange with for pre-race fuel.

I got to the Academy and setup my transition spot.… Continue
