Even when injured, Reid Coolsaet puts in monster-mileage weeks:

Reid Coolsaet , Canada’s second fastest marathoner all-time, put in more than 700K of training last week. On two wheels rather than on his feet, that is. The 38-year-old from Hamilton has been on the injury shelf for the better part of 2017. “I’ve been cross-training so much this year I’m getting sick of it,” says Coolsaet, who raced the June 17 Toronto Waterfront 10K in 31:51. But he’s been hampered, on-and-off, by a foot injury. “Riding has been a nice change from elliptical, pool running and indoor spin bike.” Over a seven-day stretch, Coolsaet put in 722K, according to his Strava page , including multiple rides of more than 100K. He averaged more than 30 km/h for most of it. He rides a Giant TCR A1 from the late 2000s, a bike his wife Marie formerly used for triathlons. Rode my bike a lot this week. #injured pic.twitter.com/Zq8MA4s80O — Reid Coolsaet (@ReidCoolsaet) Ju...
