Is Extreme Endurance Training Healthy?

Friday, May 20. 6:30 p.m.  We would like to think that training for a marathon is a healthy thing to do, but is it?  Join cardiologist Dennis Killian, MD and exercise physiologist Joe Company, PhD for a scientific conversation geared for a non-science audience. 

Free Speed?!?

When I began running longer distances, I learned that elite distance runners had a cadence of 90-95 foot-strikes/minute.  Since I came from a sprinting background, leg turnover wasn't an issue, but it was a challenge for me to keep my cadence at ~90 for longer runs.  It took practice, but I after a while, I was able to adapt ~90 strides per minute as a comfortable, relaxing running cadence.  But, at certain times of the year, I tried to bump that number up a little bit.
