The weather here has turned cold/snowy so I'm looking for alternatives for the foot strength portion of my runs. I have Vibrams. Can I opt to do just the foot strength exercises instead of the…Continue
I recently took the Threshhold heart rate test in the middle of the Half plan. Is it good for the HR to drop or raise? Does a lower HR mean my slow is even slower but now I get to my fast faster? I'm…Continue
The Zumbro 100 is April 13, I'm toying with the 17 mile single loop, since 17 would make my longest distance yet. I've looked for a 25k training plan but haven't easily found one. I've done Eric's…Continue

I didn't know. Maybe it was the sloshing of my water bottle, maybe…Continue
Truthfully, I haven't looked around on here for any forum discussions on navigating the training program. I also didn't read the manual for my heartrate monitor. So today being Day 1 of my training plan, I needed some help with that lovely piece of plastic and hooking it up/downloading/uploading all my info into the training site.
