The Wall is an Ultramarathon. 69 miles from Carlisle to Gateshead, UK.
Race is June 2021.
The training continues.
Training week 15
I ran 21.5 miles this week over 2 runs, a 17.5 miler and a 4 miler. On top of that I walked 22 miles, mainly with the dogs.
It was a difficult week to get more runs in. The dark nights are here and it was bonfire night on Thursday. Which wouldn’t be so bad if it was just one night, but for some reason people seem to set off fireworks for at least a week. Bambi our Saluki gets scared of fireworks, so we had to make sure she was ok. Running was secondary. Hopefully the fireworks will come to an end now. So I can have a better running schedule next week.
I did feel really good on the long run, felt strong and had consistent energy, and pretty much kept to the same pace throughout.
I am guessing this is very important for ultra running. The ability to just keep going at the same pace for hours and hours. I am not looking to win, I am looking to complete. So I need to be able to keep a sensible pace throughout. This moderate pace strategy, is a better method than running a quick 35 miles in the beginning, then blowing up, and having to walk the last 35 miles.
