  • Is the ‘Insanity 30′ workout program (HIIT circuits) worth the $120 for a ultra-runner? Or is there a better solution to add in strength training for ultra athletes?
  • IM Lake Placid 101 from Lucho’s experience racing it.
  • Tips for a marathoner going into Ironman
  • Should you schedule races after your big A race? Or let go, wait it out and see how recovery goes first?
