Nahhh...nothing can be compared to how it feels after you've already registered and have no idea how to train for it or why you actually signed up for it at the first place hahahaha

I guess the most common way is to progressively increase LSD distance until can hit 50km-60km and above at a go....and to start planning fuel/hydration over a 30-32hr race.

Hmm that is true.

Or perhaps try to cover about 70-75% of the total race distance in two B2B runs during the weekend? The shorter the recovery time in between, the better. Like sat morning + sunday morning or sat evening + sunday evening, or something like that I suppose.

For fuel, what sorts of actual foods are you able to digest during an ultra? If your body can't take real solid food at this point, you should try liquid or easy to swallow food that is high in energy, such as ice cream, I think. But you really should try eating when you run, during training, to prepare for this. Though lots of seasoned ultra runners I have spoken to, are able to eat and finish full meals containing things like rice and meat, and run like 2 minutes later, without indigestion.

Just some of the stuff I've learnt from my blog interviews.

Can see that the rate of digestion varies on individuals and for ultras wannabes out there, please do try out your hydration for the 30hrs plus of running.... it's no joke and hydration becomes a very important criteria to enjoy or hate the race/distance...

I've seen Jason and Esmond each finishing one pack of chap chai png just before flag off at Twilight Ultra LOL. At the 50km mark during Craze Ultra, i coudn't even finish more than 3 bites of the cup noodle. I relied mostly on gels, muesli bars and light snacks last year. So i don't think a full meal will be part of my strategy. 

Hydration and food strategy will probably be my biggest challenge as compared to the physical training. My longest run so far is 18 hours for 101km, and i might add in another 12 hours for the remaining 60km, assuming i can keep to my 10min/km pace over the remaining distance beyond 100km. I'm targeting 30 hours.... already sweating thinking about it hahaha.

The support stations are located between 8 - 10km from each other. As long as i have my bottles filled up at each station, i'll b fine. Furthermore, there are petrol kiosks, vending machines and 7-elevens available along large part of the route. Should be alright.

that would mean a lot of "homework" to be done so that roughly will know where the kiosks and vending machines are... I rem going through this part of the exercise when I was planning to join the run some years back...

I've ran the first 50km of the route and can remember what's along the way by heart. It's only the next 30km from Lorong Halus to Bedok Reservoir which will be new for me to explore and recce. So there's still work to be done.

do up proper planning and training... I am sure it's adequate...

Still, the unknown is quite scary and the distance very intimidating....

A 100 miles training is never adequate. Unless quit job and train running full time?

I never really feel that I am adequately prepared physically and mentally for any of my run.

Unless I run every day or every other day at 75 - 100% of the distance that I have signed up to run, which I never do due to work and other commitments.

But then if I am already doing that, I don't think I will be spending money to sign up for runs.

actually to be adequately trained for a race, there might not be a need to run 75%-100% of the distance you signed up every other day... just need a structured training regime... do let me know if you need more infor... :showoff:
