I haven’t ran properly in over 4 years and even then I was only doing it for a year.
I want to do a year of base running. Sounds ridiculous but I think if I only do base and gradually work it up I won’t have to deal with muscle soreness that would affect my cycling. I do a hard 20 miles ride outdoors today to test the TT bike for the first time and then I went for a slow 2km jog after.
I’m thinking this strategy can be repeated for every ride/workout. Just go for a 2km base run. Throw in a 2.5km base run one time the next week and keep building like that.
Is there a point where I can’t get away with it anymore? Like I progress to doing say 40km running a week and it will definitely affect my cycling?
Reason for this is I’m considering an Ironman as a goal in 2020.
