    Tire training

    Been using some old fashioned techniques recently to pep-up my uphill strength. One of these being tire training, which I have found not just to be the preserve of the Linfords of this world. I have found a steady gradient near my house, strapped one of my busted cayenne tires to me via a 20ft rope and off I grunted. I did about 10 of these over about 250m every time. Don't over do it tho! Busted my right thigh a couple o week ago doing it. Getting slowly better so I maybe will add more weight.

    Sounds like good fun!! I might start with a Mini Metro tyre though!

    It needed editing too, due to my poor puncture-ation.

    You're obviously under a lot of pressure. Careful, it can leave you feeling deflated.

    Re: Tire training

    I think this tyre training is over inflated!

    Seriously though my lad did quite a lot of running with a single car tyre then two fastened to a webbing strap then to his waist before he raced to the North Pole (320 nautical miles plus 65 mile walk from Resolute Bay to the start line) - Reckoned it helped enormously

    Was he towing a sled with his gear on? I could see that as ideal training. How'd he do? I looked at this race meself: Polar Challenge was it? I can't remember why I didn't go for it. Could it have been the 18k entry fee? Nah!
