I’m a heavy runner/cyclist @ 245 pounds & 6’-5” tall & would like to improve my 5k time & cycle faster?

Question:I have recently added cycling to my training and have dropped my 5k time from around 25min to around 22min but I weight the same. I have tried to lost weight but nothing seems to work. I’ve tried dieting, but every diet I try makes me feel sick and lit headed, or weak. My goal is to get my weight down to around 215 pounds or less if possible and drop my 5k time to under 20min. and to be able to cycle longer at faster pace 20+ mph. I currently play b-ball for 45min 4-5 times a week and run around 12 miles and/or cycle around 60 miles a week. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Live strong & ride hard.


Why do we sweat around the eye area when running long distances & how to stop it from trickling into the eyes?

Do intervals! On both your run and your bike. As for the weight, you need to cut carbs and eat more fresh fruits and veggies. What are your eating habits like? You said you don't like ot diet, but when you pick up "bad" foods yo need to think about what you want more, the icecream in your hands or to be lighter (which will make you faster!) Good Luck!
