The Wall Ultramarathon 2021

Running, to run The Wall Ultramarathon 2021 – Week 4 & 5 Training

The Wall is an Ultramarathon. 69 miles from Carlisle to Gateshead, UK. Race is June 2021.

The training continues.

I think my ultratraining plan is basically for simpletons haha. Not sure it could be any easier.

For the most part I am running 4 times a week, and increasing my mileage by a mile a week. With a combination of long weekend runs or back to backs. When I get up to the 30-35 mile a week range, I’ll start running 5 times a week. I am not really into tempo runs, and all my runs have hills in them. So really I’ll just be going out for aerobic runs. I am not trying to win the race, just survive it!

I have combined 2 weeks into this post because Sunday to Monday I went Camping to Dunbar in Scotland. So there was no running on these days and limited dog walking. So I had to get my runs into a slightly more condensed window. Which wasn’t a problem mileage wise. However in week 5 I did 2*10k runs on the roads instead of the trails and my shin issue flared up a bit. It is something I ll need to work on as a lot of the race will be on roads, but currently I am just enjoying getting out on the trails and upping my mileage.

It might just be in my head but the Lifepro Sonic massage gun is proving a god send. I use it after each run, and when my shin does play up it is very satisfying getting one of the pointy attachments right into the muscle.
