Today, I finally decided it might be in my best interest to look up a 50k training plan, as I have a race in two months. And since this is the first one I have done... I needed outside input and advice. Let me just say, I am now feeling a little worried.
I did not realize that I needed to be doubling up on my long runs on the weekend. Not to mention the mid-week 10 miler! Fortunately, I have one marathon distance race planned, and may be signing up for another in July ... And doing a 10 mile run each Sunday, post-marathon...?
Training for the Siskiyou Out & Back will be a little more grueling than Newport has been. I guess this is the time in my life when I will really start getting in fantastic running shape.
Have you trained for an "ultra" race?
How did you tackle the mileage?
I'd love to hear from you!
Happy running! ~Alaina
