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!
new shades with inspiration + OZ Marathon w8 | training for 100M – Check out the awesome Rudy Project Rydon shades I have been testing and last week’s workouts! #godspeedbr #bibchat
Racing – Pacing – Running…oh my! Check out how my training is going and what is coming up this year! #bibchat
With the Garmin Marathon just two weeks to go (from the beginning of the week), I have started refreshing the local weather way more than I should be…next week will begin the crazy, unnecessary amount refreshing! Let’s go, another week of training in the books!
As an active individual, I run into little niggles and issues from time to time. With the growing mileage I plan to run this year, I now have confidence that using tools like the CTM Band will keep my muscles happy! Plus, it’s PEAK WEEK in my training for the Garmin Marathon in a few short weeks! Check it out!
Well, it is about that time again – Runfessions!! How is it already the end of March?! (you will hear this every month…but for real?!) This year is starting to evolve, and I am liking where it is going in my running life! Like every month ends – the last Friday, we chat with Marcia and check… Continue reading March Runfessions | Friday Five
This past week went relatively seamlessly… With the hubs in surgery on Tuesday and part of the weekend away from home, I was able to get in most of my runs without much issue!
This training cycle is filling the time between the 50K 20M (review hopefully up this week!) and the big 100M training cycle starting in late April – my next race is the Garmin Marathon (OZ Marathon) and I will be pacing the 5:30 finishers!
This week was a little funny.. Since I took the past Sunday off, I decided to run on Monday – so then my brain was out of wack and mixed up my miles for the week. Oh well, this training cycle is off to a good start and is focused on the Garmin Marathon (where I will be pacing the 5:30 runners)! Let’s run!
After my failed attempt at the Run Toto Run 50K a couple weeks ago, I wasn’t sure how quickly I would be able to get back into my next training cycle. Frankly, I didn’t push myself to complete the scheduled training miles on the plan for the week after the race. I was pleasantly surprised that my “active recovery week” after the race ended up with 35 miles!
Do you know what I account a big portion of my positive post-race week of miles? The amazing SKINS DNAmic Compression tights that I wore at the race and for the following week (whenever possible)!
This week was an interesting one! I wanted this week to be one for recovery, but I did quite a bit of running…felt great!
I am hoping that the training time between the 50K 20M and the big 100M training cycle will be filled with additional strength training and marathon prep! My next “race” in the books is the Garmin Marathon and I will be pacing the 5:30 runners!
