I ran an Ultra last month 30 odd miles. In a rather slow 6hr 50 but it was incredibly hilly.
Now when setting out for an ultra I am always too cautious and I'd rather be a bit more gung ho so to speak and see what I could really do.
Is their anyway of calculating say a minute per mile pace that you know your body could do for hours on end? Would perhaps keeping your heart rate under a certain number etc help? Or at what speed could you go before your body starts to really eat up your glycogen stocks?
I know the question has not been asked very well but I am hoping somebody knows what I am trying to get at.
Is the only way to get out there an experiment. Problem is I could do a LSW at 9 minute mile quite happily without raising the old heart but that will probably be too quick for a 50 miler for instance
You want people to get naked with you?
YES! You offering
I was just reading about Maffetone (Don't want to open can of worms) but could this be what I am looking for???
I know I meant Bear!
Have a look at this, (it's not spam I promise) but a legendary ultra runner
Thats really nice. I love the gumboot memorial lol Seemed like a nice chap and to be able to run days on end without sleep is a bit mental!
I think I have managed to answer my own question lol. Kind of looking for low carb training. IE what threshold do I need to run at to burn fat instead of carbs etc
