Running Complements Cycling

I find this true. Such a revelation.

Perhaps because when I'm running, my heart rate is higher compared to when I'm cycling.

As my heart is conditioned to the much higher threshold, cycling seems a little bit easier. My heart rate during cycling (offroad) is about 30-35 beats per minute lower than during running. Only during a steep climb it would match my running heart rate.

So every now and then it is good to have running as part of my exercise. Get my heart some extra loving. It is much easier (and cheaper) to do, equipment wise.

May I suggest that you take it up too?
