You talk about low-intensity training and sayfor moderate athletes 30-60 minutes 3 times per week of low intensity running is plenty. I am trying to gain weight but just want to build my endurance, is this amount of training enough to build stamina and how do you determine how low of an intensity (speed to run at) is the correct one?

Heart rate of maybe 130-140 should give some endurance benefits without cutting too hard into recovery. I can't give a speed recommendation, too individual. All of this is in the longer series on Methods of Endurance Training.

Lyle,

did you have another race? Any new results to post?

How is your training going?

FWIW, when you get a chance to share, I always enjoy reading about this too.

Things fell apart after Napa, I'm still not sure why and haven't been able to get it back on track. Dunno if it was the heat, the travel, just general overtraining or what. But I crashed and haven't gotten out of the hole yet.

I had originally wanted to do one of the last 10k races in Atlanta but that's not going to happen since it's like 2 weeks away. If I can get my act together, maybe the Houston marathon at the very end of the season. Just playing it by ear right now.

Oh - I thought you were secretly winning races and not writing about them ...


I hope "haven't been able to get it back on track" only means competition and not training.

I only had a handful of races planned as it was. Currently I'm simply trying to hold some aerobic conditioning until I get my act together. Realistically, this season is probably over. Maybe Houston but it's doubtful.

I think a lot of it was not taking into account the stresses of racing (very different than on the ice) or travel (Haven't done it in over a decade). In hindsight, I should have made the week back after Napa a recovery week.

But I had an event I thought I could target in Chicago and jumped back into a volume phase to try to prepare. And cratered a week later. Some other life stress probably contributed. So it goes, I learned.
