Training Week 20
29 miles running
16 miles walking the dogs
This was my usual schedule of 3 short runs during the week, and 1 long run at the weekend.
In January I will up the short runs to 4, then start increasing the mileage of my long run gradually.
The race is in June and that will soon come around. I feel like I have given myself plenty of time to train for my first ultra, but at the same time I don’t have time to mess about. I still need to keep on top of things and keep progressing.
I felt pretty good this week in general with my running and I felt really strong on my long run.
Currently my goal is to run the ultra with an average of 4 miles an hour, which will take about 18 hours. This average includes taking photos, videos, and pit stops. So it isn’t as slow as it sounds.
With this in mind, this is how I treat my long runs at the weekend… there is a lot of messing about doing photos and videos. I am not worried about how my runs look on Strava, I just go out and enjoy my time spend on my feet. For me ultratraining is learning how to spend 3/4 of a day on my feet without crying haha.
