Training and Preparing For Ultra Marathons

Recommended Posts

Nope, its over 6 weeks. So you have to divide by 6, giving you slightly over 3 hours a week. If you want a more accurate number, remove Finisher 3 (See Table 4) from the sum of all the X-training hours of the finishers as he's somewhat an outlier

But bear in mind that your priority will still be the training runs. Clocking the mileage is primary while x-training is secondary.

And so, my maiden 100 miles is just slightly more than a month away. How prepared am i? Good question. Building up towards Craze Ultra, i've only ran a 48.5km LSD during the Craze Ultra reverse route familiarization last month, and i'll be doing a 50km trail ultra this weekend for long runs. As much as i would want to do back to back LSDs as part of my training, my schedules doesn't allow that unfortunately. If i'm not too tired, maybe i can squeeze in a 15-20km LSD the next day after my 50km trail. 

I guess this week is where i'll be peaking in terms of my LSD training. Will be tapering down from here on all the way til race day. I'll be incorporating shorter runs with higher intensity and also more core work outs after this. So will i be ready by 12 August? I really hope so.

If it's for 101km, should be enough as my longest LSD when training for my 101km previously was 35km. But 100 miles...still unknown until race day.

Just come across this. Interesting thread full of advice and tips. Insightful reading. :)

Will bookmark this and when I am ready to tackle an ultra again, may check back in for reference haha. For the meantime, I've decided to focus on FM distance and below until I can no longer continue to achieve marathon PBs... FM is already punishment enough for my body. Hahaha.

Hmm.. to be exact... I think cause @prisangel met with a good PB recently and this has spurred her further to try for more... I past that stage of the curve and now trying very hard for a little improvement(if i am lucky)...

Yep, I think that with more training, I have the potential to go faster than what I did at Gold Coast.

@AutumnRunner bro, so finally you realized that you're almost plateauing with the current distances you're aiming to PB. Wait no more...jump onto the ultra bandwagon soon. More PBs and new adventures await!!!
