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.

KEY WORKOUT: Old Plank Hill Repeats

Old Plank Hill repeats are a staple workout I prescribe in to athletes in Columbia.  This workout helps improve bike strength and allows for higher power output, which ultimately translates to power on the flats.  For those of you who live in areas with mountains, realize that this is about as long of a climb as we have in Central Missouri…

There is more to VO2 max than perofrmance

VO2max is a popular topic among exercise physiologists and endurance athletes. Exercise physiologists use VO2max to measure the effectiveness of a training protocol; if VO2max increases, the training protocol is effective. Endurance athletes use VO2max as a marker of fitness and compare values at various times of the season.
