Just wanted to come back with some details on my tentative to start running as a separate exercise … and so I did. Around 2 months ago I have started with my first 5 km throwing me after in some painfull days, as my muscles could not bare it . But slowly, slowly I did reached 10 km. Then I went for the time getting quicker and quicker, better and better every day . Well, running seems a bit boring then mtb, but believe me it is much easier to practice as you just need some shoes and some sportive outfit. It involves no cleaning up, no long runs, no fixing bike, etc..
But.. let’s go to the results. I have made so far two marathons: On in Amsterdam (16 km) and one in Romania (14 km but this was a bit hilly with 500 height meters – well they have it here too )
(just search for Todea ) –> the result is that the bikers can run too
