I realize that many members of this site are primarily cyclists. But I was wondering what benefits, if any, there were as far as running being a good cross-trainer for cycling. I usually do a couple 5 and 8k roadraces each spring/summer just for the challenge. My training right now involves 3-4 days of cycling (generally 30-60 miles per) and 2 days of running (3-5 miles each. I sometimes do a 30 minute workout on the versaclimber as a substitute for one of the runs. I started cycling late last summer as a result of a foot injury from running. I used my trainer all winter and hit the road again at the beginning of April. I don't intend on racing this year, maybe a couple of 50-75 mile tours, perhaps a century by summer's end. I guess I was just curious as to how I can become a better overall cyclist. I know the patented reply is "It depends on what you're training for", but if anybody has any training tips, words of wisdom, etc. I would appreciate it.
