Turbo sessions to improve running

Dt19 yes I have read that somewhere - I am a novice on the bike and never really measured HR on a ride- maybe I will have to work at modified HR- but then i guess that defeats the purpose!
May be I should just run!

Thanks Cougie

Thanks encouraging - I want to convert my HM time into a decent marathon time- currently there is a big difference- I am already running anything between 50 and 80 miles a week and don't want to risk injury by doing thing like hard doubles! hence the turbo- I can run the marathon distance ok at steady pace but can not keep a pace that my HM suggests I should.
I am looking to improve endurance- thinking about keeping HR up toward MP rates in the turbo will be less stressful to the legs than running.
I have a garmin 910xt with cadence monitor on the bike- I understand a power meter is expensive- but what is virtual power?

Thanks Padams- I struggle to find running routes where I can keep my HR at a constant level-I was hoping to work on the turbo for this-something like 60 mins+ with HR at HM level / 30 mins HR at 10k level- do you think this will work?

So I am better getting to the required HR by turning the legs quicker, rather than increasing the resistance on the turbo? 

Hands free dog lead!

Posted: Yesterday at 15:29

a few months ago I purchased a ruffwear lead and harness, around £100 for the pair-expensive but worth every penny.

My Weimaraner goes on most of my runs, she will run at least 50 miles a week. The beauty of the harness is it stops any strain on her neck from pulling and the lead ring is in a very easy place to attach the lead to on the run.

The lead itself (about £35 i think) has a adjustable loop which goes around your waist.It has some elastic in it to cushion sudden pulls, and a handle so it can be used in the hand easily. Most of our miles are on trails so she is off the lead-when this is the case the lead can wrap around your waist and fasten in place.

I have just ordered a Turbo and intend on using it as an extra to my routine rather than to replace any running- I usually run in the morning so hope to turbo about 3 evenings a week.

What sessions on the turbo are best to improve longer distance running 10k-Marathon.

Most of my runs are done on hilly routes and my HR is erratic, for example this morning 8 miles HR varied from 125 on some of the longer downhills to 170 on the ups.

I am thinking of turbo sessions mainly aimed at long stints of high HR- In my last HM my HR was around 170 for most of the run- I was thinking of trying turbo sessions where my HR stays at that rate for say 45 mins??

Any advise greatly received

Reading on here a few of you seem to do turbo sessions, I very rarely go out on the bike-much prefer to run. 

I have just ordered a turbo trainer and would be grateful of advice on what sessions are the best to improve my running-I intend to use the turbo as an extra session a few times a week rather than to replace any running.

Most of my running is on hilly routes so HR is very erratic and I hope the turbo will be a good way of doing a workout and keeping to a desired HR.

OPB I would guess it will put some people off, but attract other-in equal numbers I would think?

I love the look of the new route, shame it is not a full marathon then it could carry on up Ringinglow road to Stanage when the scenery really starts!

Just ran Clowne HM, thats a bit hilly (600ft ish) and a very well organised race.
