The Need for Base Training

For The

training

Lakes

NISSWA, MN

by kris Swarhout It is February and I, along with most triathletes are nearing the end of our “off season”. We start to think about how we have been attending parties, eating bad food, indulging in the occasional cocktail and doing no real focused training. The average knee jerk reaction is to hop off the couch, go swim 5000 yards, bike for four hours and then hit the track for a speed workout to get back into shape. Sounds like a good idea, right? Wrong! It doesn’t matter if you are preparing for an Ironman or a sprint distance triathlon, the steps toward a strong healthy race are the same and they all begin with a good base. The base phase is one of the most overlooked aspects of triathlon training. It is the foundation that needs to exist before speed and distance can be added. Start with a plan. This plan should incorporate different phases; base, speed, strength, rest, distance and endurance. You can make this plan on your own or you can turn to a coach to give you guidance. Either way, do your homework. If you are going to do it yourself; read some books, buy some magazines and watch some videos. The more information you can ingest, the better. The same goes with a coach. Take the time to find a coach that is certified through USATriathlon. Spend some time asking them questions about how they coach and what their training philosophy is. See if you can meet face to face. If you are putting your goals, your hopes and your dreams in their hands, you should at least get to know them first. Now that you have an idea of how you are going to start, let’s look at some basics for base training. Concentrate on building an aerobic base. You can do this by keeping most of your workouts in the low intensity range (approximately 60-70% of maximum heart rate). You have to build a good foundation of fitness and skill before you can pour on the speed and distance. Incorporate some strength training into your program as well, utilizing a periodized 12-16 week progression. Two to three days a week is optimal, depending on the time you have available. 12 www.midwestevents.com

Give yourself some rest too. Your body needs to recover from all this ramped up training you will be doing. Do not be afraid to take a day off completely every once and awhile too. Let your weakest sport take up the majority of your training time right now. For most triathletes this is swimming. If you have the means, join a “Masters” swim group. Don’t let the name fool you, masters simply means adult swim. Look for a group with a solid and consistent coach who will give you feedback every workout. If you can’t make it to masters, swim 3 to 4 times a week, but be sure to always have a workout. Swimming for 30 to 60 minutes with no structure simply enforces bad habits and gets you nowhere. Download workouts off the internet or write your own, but be sure they all have a 200 to 500 yard warm up, 500-750 yard drill set, 1000-2000 yard main set and a 100-400 yard cool down. Without this style of structure, you will never achieve the improvements you are seeking. If you take some of these simple steps and precautions in your base training phase this season, you will be setting yourself up for a truly great season. Take care of yourself and I will see you out there.

2014

Spring Shoe Guide With spring running finally arriving, lacing up to take advantage of thawing temperatures opens up opportunities for longer distances, big races, and an end to winter’s treadmill routine. With these perks of the season in mind, shoe companies have put forth new-look designs and revisions of their best models. Our rundown of the best Spring 2014 shoes features newcomers and new versions of cornerstone models. Below are our picks for the crop of the season — a variety of minimalist, stability, and cushioned models that will help runners of all stripes make the most of their running this spring.

Nike

Zoom Structure 17

Category: Stability Weight: Men’S 11 oz. | WoMen’S 9 oz. PriCe: $115 WWW.nikerunning.CoM

The latest Zoom Structure 17 provides subtle improvements over last year’s model, boasting Flywire technology in the arch which adapts to foot movement and provides a snug, supportive fit. A moderate stability shoe, the Structure 17 offers a smooth ride with a wedged midsole, adaptive crash pad for smooth foot transition, and a bright, reflective upper—a new aesthetic in many Nike models aimed at promoting low-light visibility. The Zoom Structure 17 provides slight alterations to its previous model throughout, casting an overall likable and familiar running experience.

Category: Stability Weight: Men’S 11.8 oz. | WoMen’S 9.6 oz. PriCe: $170 WWW.hokaoneone.CoM

The Conquest is a hyper-cushioned shoe, eschewing the minimalist trend completely through a 29 millimeter heel stack height and ample cushioning throughout the midsole and forefoot. Boasting a rockered design, the Conquest is designed to keep feet secure and comfortable on uneven and technical surfaces. The Conquest’s upper is lightweight and breathable, keeping the shoe’s weight down despite the ample underfoot cushioning. This shoe is set to make waves this Spring, boosting Hoka One One’s profile in a market not accustomed to mega-cushioned running shoes.

The PureFlow 3 sports a fresh new look and the first full update of both the upper and sole unit since its first launch. The shoe is still the softest model in the collection, and remains true to the philosophies that make it a PureProject Shoe. This newest itineration has increased the IDEAL heel bevel providing a 360 degree point of contact. Repositioning of the Toeflex to include the first two toes, not just the big one, promises increased power through toe-off along with greater independence. Finally the Nav Band has changed materials from fabric to silicon, and has been integrated into the midsole on the medial side. These changes hope to bring about a more consistent conformable fit to the mid foot of the shoe.

The Newton Distance Elite is the company’s first lightweight shoe, pairing Newton’s characteristic forefoot lugs with a lighter, slimmer shoe. The lugs, along with the shoes’ midsole and upper, are slimmer than in other models. This provides a more gradual entry into the company’s unique design for runners looking to dip a toe in the water, or a lighter frame for those already familiar with Newton’s designs. Testers loved the lighter shoe and the smaller lugs, finding them to provide just the right amount of spring without getting in the way.

The Pearl Izumi E:Motion Road N1 continues to please wear-testers with its low-profile design, responsive ride, and fluidity at footstrike. The E:Motion technology allows this model to be used by a variety of runners. Everyone from the elite athlete looking for a daily trainer to the Clydesdale SPRING 2014 runner needing marathon cushioning, this model can fit the bill across the board. While not as light as many shoes in today’s performance category, the PI Road N1 makes up for its more substantial weight by providing a simplistic outsole, extremely comfortable upper, and an inherent suppleness not found in many competitors.

The Skechers GOrun Speed 2 is an update to last year’s breakout racing shoe, packing many of the same features and foot-feel of the original. This year’s model, however, is lighter and feels slightly less cushioned in the forefoot with a more pronounced rockered heel. Sporting a lightweight upper and unique pod-based outsole, the GOrun Speed 2 is a solid reboot of a dependable racing shoe.

“Adapt” To an Injury Free Running Season by Marie-Christine Leisz, DO photo by Jenn Barnett I recently attended a conference entitled, “New Trends in Prevention of Running Injuries”, conducted by Blaise Dubois, a Physical Therapist and University-based researcher working with the Canadian National track and field team. He has developed a unique perspective and the courage to challenge the status quo when it comes to determining what causes running injury and how runners should train to prevent injury. Most importantly, his opinions are carefully validated by thorough review and support of the scientific literature.

run at normal distance the fourth week. If you are converting from conventional running shoes to light-weight trainers, allow 3 months. Converting from conventional shoes to minimalist shoes, take 4 months. Want to run in Vibram 5 Fingers or barefoot? Plan on converting over 6 months and 12 months respectively!

There were 2 major take-away messages from this conference. First, runners who make training changes faster than their bodies can adapt, get hurt! Second, increasing cadence - the number of steps taken per minute - will improve running economy and lessen impact forces, ultimately lessening likelihood of injury.

He endorses training on what he calls the Kenyan surface; trails with lots of variability in terrain instead of running only on flat, hard roads and sidewalks, and, never run the same distance or course on consecutive days. This variability allows the body to speed up, slow down, use a variety of muscle groups and challenges balance.

As I have discussed in past articles, running is a high impact activity. With each step you take, forces 2 ½ -times body weight are translated up through the legs to the rest of the body. If training changes are made too rapidly – faster than the body can adapt – injury will occur. I hear this sad story daily, evaluating injured runners in my clinic. If your mileage or other training changes are advanced slowly, the body will adapt and get stronger. Your bones, tendons and ligaments will become more resilient and you will be less prone to injury. But, good validated information about how slowly I should recommend a runner advance training, has never been well described.

Now, about cadence. A long stride is associated with a prominent heel strike. Gait lab analysis associates a prominent heel strike with longer contact with the ground and a “braking” phase actually slowing forward momentum, all causing increased loading forces to travel up the legs. Dubois and other running gait experts, feel the heel strike style predisposes runners to injury. Converting a heel strike to a mid-foot strike, is believed to lessen risk of injury by reducing ground contact, eliminating braking phase and decreasing loading forces transmitted up the legs.

Dubois recommends making agonizingly SLOW changes in training or footwear that would challenge the patience of the most disciplined athlete! He feels this is the way the tissues of the body can accommodate the impact of running and adapt to the stress without injury. He advocates 1 minute walk, 1 minute run intervals with 5-10 minute walks to start and end each session, in all of his 10K through marathon training programs. Increase weekly mileage by no more than 3-10% per week and increase the weekly long run by no more than 5-15 minutes per week. If you are changing to new shoes, wean out of your old shoes slowly as your body adapts to the new shoes. Walk around the house in the new shoes for 2 days. Add short jogs in them the first week, Walk-run in one minute intervals the second week. Add longer jogs the third week and

The easiest way to convert from a heel strike to a mid-foot strike is to increase cadence or the number of steps taken per minute. Ideal cadence appears to be as close to 180 steps per minute as possible. Running with cadence near 180 improves running economy or VO2 max. The better the VO2 max, the better the runner! Another way to adopt a mid-foot strike is to change from a conventional to a light weight or minimalist running shoe. These shoes have less heel cushion and the body will naturally change to mid-foot strike position for comfort. But remember, as I explained above, you have to make any changes like cadence manipulation and especially shoe type, very slowly as well to allow the body to adapt. Do you want to know more?

Clean Up Your Ride! by Andy Tetmeyer photo by Jenn Barnett

Eventually it will be time for those of you who don’t have fat bikes to start riding outside again. Unless things have changed in the 20 years since I last put in time in a bike shop, there are a lot of bikes out there that were ridden hard and put up wet. Here’s what to do before you pull your trusty whip out of the garage or basement and get out on the road again. Even if you’re not mechanically inclined, it is a good idea to know what needs attention when you bring your bike to the shop (and bringing it to the shop in the next 2 weeks will almost certainly result in faster turn-around by a mechanic who is less stressed than he or she will be in early April). First, clean everything as needed. Household spray cleaner (like 409) and rags are adequate. A hose, a bucket of soapy water and brush are generally faster. Wheels and tires: Look at the brake track; it should be flat and fairly smooth. If it is concave and/or gouged, then your brake surface is wearing out and the rim needs evaluation and possible replacement. Are the wheels straight? Spin them in the bike and gauge trueness by using a brake pad as a reference. The rim should run straight both side to side and up and down. If not, the wheel needs to be trued. With the tires inflated, check the crown of the tire, the part that touches the road. If it is flat, the tire is worn. A worn tire will eventually get so thin that flats become commonplace. If you’re not comfortable changing tubes, then replace your tires if the crown is worn flat. Cogs and spokes should be clean. Your cogs do not require lubrication, just your chain. Chain: it should be clean and lightly lubed. Chains wear by elongating. They should be replaced every 2000 or 3000 miles, sooner if you ride in poor conditions. If you do not replace the chain in a timely manner, your cassette (cogs) will wear down along with the chain, making it necessary to replace them along with a worn chain. Shops have tools to measure chain wear - they can tell you whether you need a new one or not. Better to replace it sooner than later. Frame: Now that it is clean, I hope you don’t see any dents or cracks. Brakes and shifters: They should work fine, brakes should engage and release easily. Corroded housing or cables will increase braking effort and degrade brake release, slowing you down. It will certainly make shifting worse. Cables and housing should be changed every couple years. They’re cheap. A broken brake cable is a SERIOUS safety concern. A broken shifter cable is a major headache. Gummy housing is just not worth living with. Bolts: Bolts should be tight on everything, but please do not get in the habit of just tightening every bolt without measuring. If you are a bolt tightener, get a torque wrench and allen sockets. If not, rely on your shop to check bolt torque. Overtorqued bolts will break unpredictably. Speaking as someone who once broke a bar in half sprinting (defective bar, not overtight bolts) you do not want to have your bars fall off. It is BAD. Bar tape: Is yours ratty and ripped? New tape is so choice. If you have the means I highly recommend it. Saddle: you’re on your own. Seat bag: if your spare tube is more than 2 years old, you are very lucky. Replace it now before it dry rots. Make sure your pump works or you have full CO2 cartridges. You should have a folding tool kit. Bottle: check for mold. Apply the same advice as for bar tape.

Is it possible to be an athlete and yet be too inactive overall? Yes! I have had many clients who are athletes but find that their overall lifestyle has become sedentary. Our society has, in general, been heading toward a more sedentary lifestyle. For many people their jobs are often spent at a desk and computer for at least eight hours a day. Research shows that vigorous exercise does not make up for an overall sedentary day. Our bodies are designed to move! Here are some quick tips to stay more active: -stand up at your desk every 15 minutes -walk around the office for one minute each hour (carry a clipboard, walk around and count the light bulbs…you will even look like you are working) -take the stairs at work -park farther away at work or the grocery store -incorporate strength training (such as bodyweight exercises) in your fitness routine. Do squats to reach down and empty the dishwasher. Skip a step when going up stairs – turns your steps into lunges. Staying more active overall will help you to stay more flexible and stable (which help us avoid muscle tightness and soreness). Move more; “live more!”

Hitting the Trails Interest and opportunities for trail-running and its eccentric cousin ‘ultrarunning’ are at an all time high. Since some of the national magazines like Trail Runner and Ultrarunning Magazine are plastered almost exclusively with pictures of runners on single-track in the high-mountains of the West, it is easy for outsiders to not realize that the Midwest has some of the very best trails, most beautiful vistas, richest forests and most well organized trail events anywhere in the world that we wouldn’t trade for anything. As the snow starts to melt this Spring, the trails will call us back and so will some of the great Midwest trail-races. Whether you want to spend a short morning on the trail participating in a low key trail 5K or the entire day battling a grueling trail 50KM (or longer distance race), there is a wide range of options to pursue. Beware, unlike many local road races, many of these races have small field limits in order to preserve an intimate feel and create the lowest impact on the natural surroundings. As a result many fill early, so pick a few you want to run and sign up early!

Zumbro Endurance Run 100 and Midnight 50 The Zumbro Endurance Run hosts three race distances over two days in one of the most unique and least explored areas in Minnesota - the Zumbro River Bottoms, approximately 2 hours South of Minneapolis. Runners can tackle the 100 mile distance which starts on Friday morning, the 50 mile which starts at Midnight Friday or the 17 mile race which starts on Saturday morning. The race takes place in the Zumbro River Bottoms Management area in Southern Minnesota’s bluff country - just outside of the tiny village of Theilman. Generally speaking, the Zumbro River Bottoms Management area lies within a portion of the Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood Forest – an expansive 2 million acre tract of Minnesota hardwood forest. Mississippi river valley bluff country is wild, rugged and beautiful - it is the perfect venue for trail running! The course consists of a rugged / hilly 16.7 mile loop which is completed once for the 17 mile race or multiple times to equal 50 or 100 miles. The course consists of primarily single and double-track trail with some minimum maintenance gravel road sections.

Scenic Trail Running in the “City of Trails” St. Croix Falls is the “City of Trails” for good reason. City limit trails wind through this ancient, glaciated valley on the Ice Age National Scenic Trail and alongside the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. In fact, the small border cities of St. Croix Falls and Taylors Falls have over 30 miles of meandering, connected trails, all developed and maintained by volunteer groups. Run the rugged and scenic trails of Wisconsin’s first state park, Interstate, established in 1903. Just across the river is Minnesota’s state park equivalent, also named Interstate and also trail running worthy. The Wooly Bike Club laid the newest trail system in 2012: 12 miles of circuitous mountain bike trail, suitable for a fast and furious trek on foot. Run the outline of Wisconsin’s primitive roots on the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. St. Croix Falls is home to the western terminus of this 1,200 trail, segments of which bridge babbling spring-fed brooks, Jurassic-like fern forests and craggy basalt boulders. Trail running nirvana may be achieved at the just opened Big Rock Creek Resort, 20 miles of beautiful and challenging, incline trail.

6th Annual, Friday April 11th through Saturday April 12th, Theilman Minnesota. More information at http://www.zumbro100.com

All trails are well-kept, mapped and clearly marked. A new season in the City of Trails is just a new adventure; cross country here means skiing and trail running, biking both mountain and winter fat tire.

Naturally, National Trails Day will be celebrated on June 14 with the 10th annual City of Trails 5K & 10K Trail Run. See www.cityoftrails5K.com for registration and detailed information.
