Cycling is ideal cross-training for running. Like swimming, it fits into the category of cardio cross-training, but what is unique to biking is that it trains you to move your legs in the perfect pattern for running. No other form of cross-training has this effect, and that’s just one reason I think every running should bike at least once per week. In this episode, I discuss all the benefits of cycling and how to get a bike. I also provide examples of several workouts to do on a bike, some that are more appropriate for recovery days and some that are more intense, and therefore, more appropriate for your hard workout days.
