Is it a good idea for a cyclist to introduce running into their training? And if so, how?
A bit of background; I came to cycling a couple of years ago from starting to run more as I had persistent issues with ITB syndrome. Since then I’ve only run a handful of times, pretty slowly, keeping HR in zone 2, and only for a few miles. My cycling goal is to work on base/FTP over the winter, then the higher end next spring ready to do a few circuit races (hopefully, covid allowing).
Would starting to run again be any benefit to me? Obviously I don’t really want to risk inflaming my ITB.
