Incorporating running

I’m interesting in incorporating running into my training plan. I’m a 55 year old masters athlete with many years on the bike, including a multi-year foray into Ironman. I’ve been back to bike focus since covid (did not miss swimming and never went back). I’ve been doing Grand Fondos and gravel for the past several years.

I like running and would like to keep running n the mix as cross training a few times a week.

What is your advice?



Hey @jmkizer -

Keep your running low key if you choose to run. I would do it after zone 2 days so you have a proper rest day after that! I wouldn’t do it more than 2x/week and I definitely would not run the week of or two weeks out from your events!

Hope that helps,
Coach Allie
