When it comes to cycling, there are many different ways in which you can fit cycling into a running plan. Some of these particular ways include training hard on the run and recovering on the bike, training hard and easy on both the run and the bike, training easy on the run and hard on the bike, as well as the last way to go about it in the act of zoning.
- If you’re a runner who is training with harder-effort workouts including long runs, speedwork, tempo runs and hill workouts, you can weave in two easy-effort cycling workouts weekly.
- Keep the resistance light for active recovery and to balance the stress load on your body throughout the week.
- It’s an effective way to increase circulation without impact, which can help speed the rate of recovery.
