I've done a lot of cycling, running, swimming -- all ultra racing type stuff. I've had the benefit of very good coaching, so I consider myself very lucky. It is very very beneficial to your body, training and metabolism to 'mix up' the intensity of your workouts. If you run at one pace only --- do some sprints, intervals and keep surprising the body: Same goes for cycling, hiking etc.

When I 'race walk' -- without any training, I can complete 9km in 59 minutes.....I generally walk 7 - 10 miles in 1:15 minutes --- I'm "moav'n moav'n" :-)
I'm closing the books for tonight and back at it again tomorrow. I'm stressed out of my mind this week with two major assignments due in two course. Oh well -- 'and this too shall pass'...../Lu
