Throughout the last several months, I've been pumping some iron. Typically in the 8-15 rep range to failure. Now I noticed lately, I do look more muscular and a bit leaner. It's a pretty good look...

So you have gotten it. But I'm surprised only twice. Yea, I got it after about 5 miles. But when I ran, it gave me a better feeling than cycling. Cycling is more fun though, but running made me feel...

If you are training for 100 miles, would you say it's better to do 50 + miles consistently than to just do one very long ride close to 100 miles, but less often?

I'm not sure they know what it is. No, I have gotten it before. And it happens much quicker when running. In fact I never got it from cycling, even when doing tough hills. I'm not sure why that is.

What's your opinion? Is it 40? 50? 70? 100? I have done 60 miles recently and 70, but I don't feel like there are many other benefits once you get past 40 or 50. I could be wrong. Maybe it's...
