Heart-rate recommendations: transfer between running and cycling exercise?
Roecker K, Striegel H, Dickhuth HH.
Int J Sports Med 2003 Apr;24(3):173-8
Medical Clinic and Polyclinic, University of Freiburg, Department of Rehabilitative and Preventive Sports Medicine, Freiburg, Germany. firstname.lastname@example.org
With the expanding use of portable heart rate (HR) monitors in endurance sports, HR is increasingly used as a marker for exercise intensity. Hereby, HR at the so-called individual anaerobic threshold (IAT) is one possible reference point. However, once determined, it is often attempted to apply HR recommendations from one type of ergometry to different kinds of exercises.
Note: Anaerobic Thresholds seem to vary between sports :- Paul

Physiological cost of running while wearing spring-boots.
Mercer JA, Branks DA, Wasserman SK, Ross CM.
J Strength Cond Res 2003 May;17(2):314-8
Department of Kinesiology, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada 89154.
The purpose of the study was to investigate the physiological cost of running in spring-boots compared with running in running shoes at different speeds.
Note: It seems running in spring boots is just as easy as running in runners, with less impact stress :- Paul

Longitudinal analysis of lactate threshold in male and female master athletes.
Marcell TJ, Hawkins SA, Tarpenning KM, Hyslop DM, Wiswell RA.
Med Sci Sports Exerc 2003 May;35(5):810-7
Kronos Longevity Research Institute, Phoenix, AZ 85018, USA. email@example.com
PURPOSE: The lack of relationship between lactate threshold (LT) and running performance in older runners, and the increase in LT with age, has not been previously studied in a longitudinal design. We evaluated the cross-sectional and longitudinal changes in LT with age and compared the changes in LT with changes in performance variables.
Note: Lactate Threshold is not as good a determiner of exercise intensity in older athletes as VO2max :- Paul

Effectiveness of cycle cross-training between competitive seasons in female distance runners.
White LJ, Dressendorfer RH, Muller SM, Ferguson MA.
J Strength Cond Res 2003 May;17(2):319-23
California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, California 93407.
The purpose of this study was to examine whether substituting 50% of run training volume with cycling ("cross-training") would maintain 3,000-m race time and estimated VO2max in competitive female distance runners during a 5-week recuperative phase.
Note: Cycling 50% of the time during the offseason won't detract from your running performance :- Paul

Optimising high-intensity treadmill training using the running speed at maximal O(2) uptake and the time for which this can be maintained.
Smith TP, Coombes JS, Geraghty DP.
Eur J Appl Physiol 2003 May;89(3-4):337-43
School of Human Life Sciences, University of Tasmania, 7250, Launceston, Tasmania, Australia.
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of two high-intensity, treadmill interval-training programs on 3000-m and 5000-m running performance.
Note: It seems that training at 60% of your time to exhaustion at vVO2max is better than intervals at 70% for 3000m runners :- Paul

Running training and adaptive strategies of locomotor-respiratory coordination.
McDermott WJ, Van Emmerik RE, Hamill J.
Department of Exercise Science, University of Massachusetts, 110 Totman Building, MA 01003, Amherst, USA.
Eur J Appl Physiol 2003 Apr 24;
It has been suggested that stronger coupling between locomotory and breathing rhythms may occur as a result of training in the particular movement pattern and also may reduce the perceived workload or metabolic cost of the movement.
Note: It seems runners are better at changing breathing patterns to match running speed:- Paul

Neuroprotection associated with running: is it a result of increased endogenous neurotrophic factors?
Ang ET, Wong PT, Moochhala S, Ng YK.
The possible neuroprotective effect of physical exercise was investigated in rats after middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO), a focal stroke model. It was found that physical exercise in the form of a 12-week treadmill running programme reduced the volume of infarction caused by MCAO.
Note: It seems runners loose less brain cells than non-runners (at least in rats anyway!):- Paul

Post-exercise vitamin C supplementation and recovery from demanding exercise.
Thompson D, Williams C, Garcia-Roves P, McGregor SJ, McArdle F, Jackson MJ.
Department of Sport and Exercise Science, University of Bath, BA2 7AY, Bath, UK.
Eur J Appl Physiol 2003 Apr 1; [epub ahead of print]
The aim of this study was to investigate whether post-exercise vitamin C supplementation influences recovery from an unaccustomed bout of exercise.
Note: Again Vitamin C supplementation seems not to aid the recovery process:- Paul

Effect of cycling cadence on subsequent 3 km running performance in well trained triathletes.
Bernard T, Vercruyssen F, Grego F, Hausswirth C, Lepers R, Vallier JM, Brisswalter J.
Br J Sports Med 2003 Apr;37(2):154-159
Ergonomie et performance sportive, UFR STAPS, Universite de Toulon-Var, France. Laboratoire de physiologie et biomecanique, INSEP, Paris, France. Groupe analyse du mouvement, UFR STAPS, Universite de Bourgogne, France. Chair, Medical and Research Committee of the European Triathlon Union and Senior Lecturer, School of Chemical and Life Sciences, University of Greenwich, London, UK Veronica@vleck.fsnet.co.uk
OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effect of three cycling cadences on a subsequent 3000 m track running performance in well trained triathletes.
Note: Interesting - indicates that cadence has little impact on running performance after cycling. (Paul)
