Re: magnesium?

Call me crazy but shouldn't you (the generic you, I'm not directing this at any one person) go and get your blood tested to see if all of your blood levels are appropriate? If they aren't, your doctor can recommend a way to get them more in line. I suspect a doctor would be better able to tell you w...

Re: Running in a 5K and not sure where to start..

Hello everyone!! I have signed up for a 5K in October and I'm not sure where to start. I am doing the C25K program and I do weight train but should I be doing anything different? I try to eat healthy, I eat fruits and veggies quite often but I don't eat a lot of meat. For some reason I don't feel w...

Re: Happy Birthday RunningMania Saturday Thread

I did the Sonofagun Trail Run/Race this morning. The concept is you run a 4.5K trail loop and a new race starts every hour on the hour. Your time doesn't matter as long as you finish within the hour and want to run anothr loop. The loop is quite hilly and mainly single track. It was quite easy to do...

Lactate Test?

Has anyone had a lactate test done? A buddy of mine had one done a couple of weeks ago. The test suggested most of his training should be done at an extremely high heart rate. His coach looked at it and thought the level of HR was crazy. Just wondering what anyone else thinks about the test.
