The current issue of Running Times has the answer to your question. See "Training on the Edge Without Going Over," by Bob Baird, p. 61, Running Times, November 2001. The article says, "Leg turnover is the most important aspect of using a bike correctly. You should pedal at a minimum of 90 rpms, even when you are just warming down, in order to reinforce the rapid turnover you need for running. Set the resistance low enough that you can maintain this pace easily."
Preparing for a marathon and staying healthy are almost mutually exclusive. I'll be at the MCM with you. I've had various foot ailments since early August. So don't feel alone in trying to recover from an injury while staying on your training schedule!
