    Doing other sports besides SS MTB?

    I just started running and must say that I have a lot of trouble doing more then 30 minutes.

    Anyone of you do other sports besides single speed mtb?

    I prefer to ride, but end up running since I don't have much time these days. Takes an extra hour or two to gear up and drive to the trailhead to do a ride, and I kill about 2 or 3 times as many calories running as I do riding the same amount of time. As the weather and amount of daylight improves, I'll try to squeeze in a weekly ride though.

    I found I was riding so much it was hard to walk for more than 30mins. I have started walking and jogging some days of the week to try and redevelop some basic muscle groups.

    That was my problem this morning. Did 15min jog and 15min walk and it totally killed my legs. I thought my legs were strong

    I kayak as well. Can't say I'm much of a runner, two bad knees and two trashed ankles will suck the joy right out of running. I do spend a lot of time on my feet at one of my jobs, walking up and down hills doing all maner of somewhat physical stuff. There are a few very focused stretches that I do to make cycling not quite so hard on my lower back, and those seem to help with mobility in general, make it easier to walk, etc. If you're really interested in those, I'll try to find something about them online, because I'm not sure I know how to describe what you should be doing.

    Start with this.

    Diet.......
    Get a juicer.

    Juice granny apples, watercress, beet root, ginger root, pomegranate.

    Drink this 30 minutes before training.

    Two days a week of progressive resistance body building.
    day 1 upper body
    Day 2 lower body
    Day 3 a long walk
    Day 4 wind sprints with out shoes on.
    Day 5 rest
    Day 6 long bike ride focusing on cadence.
    Day 7 rest.

    Start over.

    This system of training combines with that drink will take you to a fitness level you have never experienced before.

    Stay away from tap water, milk and red meat.
    Stay away from canned anything.
    Forget about supplements, they are a scam.
    Stay away fron soy anything and anything with corn or wheat in it. These three products have all been geneticly modified in the us and areconsidered poison to healthy training athletes.


    If you stay the course on what i have laid out you will become stronger, leaner and your indurance will skyrocket.

    I have proven this to many many athletes. Years of research have led me to this system.

    Take note. Be very mindful of your joints and spine. These parts do not heal.
    Once damaged, they are damaged for life.

    Drink as much of that comba as you would like but do not drink late at night.
    There are nitrates in water cress and beet root that will keep you from sleeping good.

    Upside, nitrates effect erections, no joke, your girl friend or wife will want to know wtf you have changed. We found watercress to be like natures viagra 2x.

    Good luck.

    Inline speed skates (sorta like one having gear)


    Skates are awesome for the road and paved trails.

    All my bike riding is off road.

    Although many of your points elude to some sound theories, I think your oversimplifying a bit.

    Lol ya

    This forum is not ready for any type of program like that. Must be mostly kids. I didnt see one reference to nutrition, sleep, stretching.

    Or just very poor performance. If you want to be your best, you best not waste time posting here by the look of things, its all amatures.

    The question in its self is a failure. Its like skipping from step 3 to step 9 wondering why your not gettting any better lol.

    Cheers folks, just ride the bike for fun, stay under 20 miles a ride and call it done.
