  • Broken treadmill - any point in bothering to fix?

    I'd get a quote on service. A 5yr old treadmill isn't all that old and should still have some life in it. Maybe the bad belt is burning out the motor, and it winds up being a relatively easy fix. I'd imagine that the repair will be south of the $1000 that you spent on it, which still would keep it south of the $2500 original price of buying a new equivalent one.
    Change variables: 12 year old treadmill, paid $1,300. It's Keys Fitness, former Ironman treadmill license holder, since gone bankrupt.
  • The back by some what popular demand but still always loved 2018 TriRoost Secret Santa thread

    Thanks for the awesome belt made from a bike tire, Secret Santa. I expect the rolling resistance will be significantly better when worn with latex pants than other outfits.

  • Old School Training

    Most of those books kinda suck.

    You could just do this...

    Ah, the days when men were men... And he probably went to the pub for two pints of bitter to recover from those workouts...

  • Exerscience

    I had a doctor prescribe less fitness as a way to regulate a minor cardiac issue.
  • Old School Training

    Let's say for the sake of argument that one did not want to spend the money on a coach or a system like TP. Let's also assume the person can read and is good enough with Excel and databases to build up a program that relies on percentages, thresholds, etc.

    Which of the 'old school' training books do you lean towards?
