Thinking Out Loud

just keep moving | 5 tips for conquering the ultra [or ANY] distance

There are so many things to remember when running the ultra [or ANY for that matter] distances – 50K and above. Things can get hard…real hard, but there are several ways to push through the pain to get to that finish line. Here are five things I need to remember when running a long race – let’s say, 100 miles. Since I am deep into the Hawk 100 training, I need to think about these often!

This week is just feels a bit off…

After the [all] night run, I have been “catching up” on sleep and making a full night of sleep a bigger priority than getting out for morning runs. I am not too heart broken about the down week, they come sometimes – planned or not!

I am gearing up to travel and run the Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago in a couple weeks and the quickly approaching Hawk 100m event in September!

Let’s get on with it!

I am playing with my miles a lot this week. Since I built in a night 50K into this training block, the miles are a little funky this week leading up to  the weekend. I plan a couple trail days this week (check out below if it works out or not) and the long, night training run this weekend! While my miles are messed around from day to day, the miles for the week equal the same ♥

Let’s goooo!
