Race or training? Good run
It was the Thames Trot 50.....although it's only 48 miles. But it's training for Transvulcania in May
Awesome stuff and well done!
Sorry to ask here Stephen - any suggestions on a good 100km training plan for a race in August? My first one
Try either the Ascics website and look at their custom plans. Or Richard suggests trying the ultra marathon running.com website. Otherwise just keep upping your mileage on your long runs. Enter some 50k races and even 50 miles if you can and keep doing speed work.
Cheers stephen appreciated. These are some on the fellnr site well.
If you've done the long runs, once you get past a certain distance it's mostly in your head to be honest.
I have read that splitting the long runs over two days is a good strategy? So a Saturday and Sunday - getting used to running on tired legs I suppose?!
Yes lots of people do that. I've done similar.
Cannot wait, I will get BM out of the way and get on it!
Muddy as f*** only 208 finished out of 400 starters
I know the Thames isn't regarded as flat but it's got more elevation that I expected!
Yes there were certainly some undulating sections. Furthermore unless my watch is mistaken, we were actually climbing gradually the whole race.
