Raising Thresholds

Ah, thanks Scott.

Comes back to HAAD type training then really. Everything will function and improve better if your aerobic base is bigger and stronger first.

I'm guessing that improving your aerobic threshold will influence your anaerobic threshold a little, but you will need to target that to see bigger improvements.

Thanks Scott

So that would mean if you just did easy running for a significant time, your aerobic threshold would become closer to your anaerobic threshold. Hmmm.

I've learnt a lot about training physiology -different thresholds etc and it's just something I haven't read about specifically.

I know personally that marathon training helps with my 10k times.

Are one's Aerobic Threshold and Anaerobic Threshold linked together?

In other words, if you just work on and improve your Aerobic Threshold, does it nudge up your anaerobic Threshold too, as a consequence?

And likewise, if you just work on and improve your Anaerobic Threshold, does it pull up your Aerobic Threshold too, as a consequence?

Talkback: Is running with a high cadence really that important?

Utilising muscle elasticity and energy return relies on a cadence faster than around 175/180.

Pace is completely determined by cadence and stride length

This is a popular misconception- True stride length is a result of speed.

All movement is a result of falling out of balance and cadence is how you count how often you change support to to regain temporary balance.

I can have a cadence of 200 but go nowhere (running in place).

I can artificially increase my stride length by reaching forward with my foot -but we all know that over striding slows you down.

Fall angle + appropriate cadence = speed, = stride length.

OMM Kamleika Jacket

It is meant to be breathable. I would say condensation does build up inside, which is noticeable if you wear short sleeves under. I have to turn it inside out after a run, but it dries off very quickly

Best bit of running kit bought in 9 years.

One of the nice things about it, is that, unlike Gore jackets, it's soft and quiet.

Run faster and for longer

Posted: 06/10/2015 at 14:14

You need to increase your aerobic threshold by running long and slow (below 75% Max Heart Rate). You also need to increase your Lactate threshold by running 1-6 miles a tad slower than your 10k race pace.

These combine to allow you to run longer at a faster pace, or the same pace easier

I'd cancel it.

No pain in the calf doesn't mean it's completely healed and strong enough for continuous loading. I've had a few grade 1 and 2 calf tears and have had them tear again when I was convinced it had healed (and that was with very short jogs)

I think you should be completely fit, healthy, and well prepared for a marathon, especially your first as you don't want the experience to be tarnished in any way.

How can I upload a gpx or tcx file to my Garmin 310xt?

You have to use Garmin Training Centre. Look for Courses/Import (or similar -can't quite remember), Then Send to Device.

It's not an easy process but can be done.

If you have no luck, PM me and I'll look in detail for you.
