    Anyone do a little running for cross-taining?

    I'm Runnin' to Beat the Blues this weekend. I just got into running in the past three months and wanted to know how many of you use running as tool for anaerobic workouts.
    Thinking about trying out a sprint triathlon. Has any one of you done one?



    Any advice?
    Stupid hurts!

    I've been doing some running for about 6 months now. Really took a liking to it. At this point I suppose when I bike it's considered 'cross training', lol!!

    I'm also doing the Runnin' to beat the blues race this weekend - but the 1 mile. Just excited to go see how fast 1 mile can go at this old age!! I've got high school times to compare to (20 years ago, ugh) - but I don't plan on ever catching those again!! haha

    Don't really have any thoughts on your question about sprint tri's, or using running as anaerobic workouts - but just thought I'd say good luck at your race this weekend!!

    Some running, Reed?

    I started doing a few sprint tri's the last couple of years. It's fun and I found it to be a good way to stay motivated and cross train over the winter. I targeted a few early season races that gave me a goal through the winter. Once the weather broke and the trails dried out, all I wanted to do was ride anyway. There are plenty of good sprint events locally. The Team Magic events are well done http://www.team-magic.com/. The Mach Tenn in Tullahoma is a great venue and very well organized http://www.machtenn.org/triathlon/default.htm. To mix in some off-road, the Lock 4 Xterra is a lot of fun as well http://thebikerschoice.com/sites/def...ra%20Flier.pdf

    I've done several Sprint Tri's and all were fun. Usually an hour to a hour and a half is all its takes to do one.Kinda fun trying to be fast in all three sports.

    My first one the swim was on a lake and luckily I had swam the route several times before the race, an open water swim can be intimidating.We swam out around an island.

    I still run as its easier than riding.....I can wake up early and run right out of my door and be back before breakfast. Putting on a pair of running shoes is waaaayyyy easier than > Bike shoes-helmet-gloves-check air pressure-lube chain etc-etc.
