I am following a marathon training plan via a thread on this forum. I am happy in that plan and I feel that it will get me over the line at the VLM2013 in a good time. It is a traditional plan. It is based on mileage and the paces I have been recommended are too high to build endurance I think i.e. I think i will be operating well above 70% max hr.
I don't want to deviate from that running plan but I am concerned about building endurance for a September 2013 IM. I was wondering if I do low HR cycling on the days I am not running whether that would help? Would the endurance I develop from the cycling help me in my running at the IM too? I know they use different muscles. Would the fact that on my running days my heart rate would be much higher spoil the low hr work I did on my bike?
I'm a bit confused as you can probably tell from the words above. HELP! Please.
