    For more accurate prediction when cycling and running: Is there any means to include a combination of running and cycling mileage in any the Jack Daniels VDOT race finish time predictor or any other predictor?

    As I age, the need for recovery time increases relative to time on feet. To reduced injury risk and build physiology, I utilize cycling/spinning. It is significantly less boring than running in the pool. Wondering the effects of each and in combination. For example Running 50 miles per week with no cycling vs. 35 miles running + 35 cycling. Would like to understand the relationship across various combinations and its effect on race time prediction from 5K to Marathon.

    Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks for your time.
