12-3-30-Treadmill Survey Request

12-3-30-Treadmill Survey Request

In 2014 I published “Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging” based on 8 years of my own training, with the generous input of several hundred of my most loyal social media followers. The Incline Treadmill Workouts were the most favorably received, and the best logistical choice for my readers, so in 2018 I created “Rucking Simple Treadmill Training Program” an introductory manual to building your own Weighted Backpack Incline Treadmill Workouts. These two books have been my perennial best-selling books since they were each released.

I guess I’m not that up on social media viral sensations, especially on TikTok, so I had to receive a Google News story to point out that there was something going on right this very minute with an incline treadmill workout. Being a pioneer in the field I thought I would compare it to my own workouts as published in the two books listed above, and while the pace is a bit faster than I would recommend, especially to a brand new just-off-the-couch client who primarily wanted to burn fat, it seemed to fit in right at Week Four of my “Adjustment Cycle” program from Summit Success.

With all that in mind, I want to know what you want to know. I created this brief survey to allow me to put together my thoughts into a cohesive plan moving forward to allow me to continue my role as a pioneer in incline treadmill training. Please fill out this survey and let me know how you feel about the “12-3-30” sensation and what we can do to work together using similar parameters and techniques to achieve the goals you need to.

How-to Do a Custom Workout in Zwift Cycling (redo)

How-to Do a Custom Workout in Zwift Cycling (redo)

Yesterday I did a custom cycling workout in Zwift. I made one mistake. I put my headshot insert in the corner where the workout file went. Well Drat. So I did a new workout today and here you can watch these simple instructions for how to do it yourself. Again, no training principles, just a good solid hour off Zone 3 with a warmup and cooldown. Hang tight and I’ll show you how to build your own workout to help you achieve your training goals.

How-to: Custom Cycling Workout in Zwift?

How-to: Custom Cycling Workout in Zwift?

Do you need to create your own custom cycling workout in Zwift? Let’s try it together. It’s my first time too. I had shoulder surgery so need to cut my watts down to a nice steady hour at 145 watts. I don’t know what that is for my w/kg or FTP% but it turned out to be just into Zone 2. Nice. Don’t miss my little bit of outtakes at the end.

How to Batch Import from Runcline to Stryd Power Center (and fix a couple of Training Peaks files)

How to Batch Import from Runcline to Stryd Power Center (and fix a couple of Training Peaks files)

This took way longer than needed, but hey, I got it done. First of all, Runcline App does not auto-export to Stryd so I had to get all those from my emails and wonder of wonders, Stryd allows a batch import. Check that out!

Then I fixed a couple of overlapping files in Training Peaks that were pushed by Stryd which turned out to be a real bear. Prepare for the frustration. Later I’ll show you how to upload all the Runcline files into their associated Training Peaks files.

Runcline App First Test with Stryd Footpod and Zwift Running

Due to unsolvable issues connecting my Stryd footpod to Zwift Running to my Win10 PC via ANT+ I decided to try the Runcline App in my iPad. Runcline acts as a Bluetooth Bridge between the footpod and Zwift. Sadly that requires me to use another Bridge – in this case the Zwift Companion App on my Android phone. Whew! What a mess. But that at least allows me to gather up the full range of Stryd statistics, such as ground contact time, etc. that are normally missing from Zwift exports. It also allows me to gather incline/elevation gain data that are very important to my training. So I installed it, jumped through a few hoops, endured a few back-and-forth pair/re-pair issues and finally got the stats I wanted. I verified it in Training Peaks, and while there are still a few things to mess with and sort out, I think it will work. For now…

Japanese Skyrunning Event Completed in 2020?

Amazing. Simply amazing. Wish I were there. When they canceled the Broken Arrow this past summer (for “reasons”) I was nearly devastated. Totally lost a lot of my drive and motivation. Previous to that I was on my training program, starting to become the best me possible and shooting for an Age Group placement, which I would have had in 2019 if I were a week older. Anyway, here’s a link to the story, courtesy of our really good buds over at the big FB:
