Sorry for asking what is to the seasoned runners is probably very simple questions.I have run a few road 10k's and the Mighty deer stalker twice and thought it was time to up the antiI am entering a team of 5 into the adidas TR24. My problem is how to train for the event given that I will probably end up running on 4 or 5 occasions over 24hours ???
At the moment it looks as if we are going to take it in turns to do single laps, this means training to do 4 or 5 10k in 24hrs.
Should I use a similar schedule as a 50k ultra? I cannot see me running any more than 20k at one time.Thanks for your help.Alex
Thanks for the reply, I was starting to think my question was that stupid I had been sent to the stupid corner.
I'm really excited about this race and if the reviews are anything to go by should be a brilliant experience.
Going to try and up my miles up a bit and maybe do a sat/Sun back to back. I can't rely on my natural running ability because I have none so need to get out to the woods and work on my 10K's.
I did this in a pair last year and have entered again for TR and Lightning as a pair, the TR was my favourite race ever for atmosphere.
I had a couple of days per week where I started off doing 2 x 10k runs per day, then upped that to 3 x 5-10k's - morning, lunchtime and evening, in the month or so before the race.
I did 10 laps on the day, we totalled 21 and came 3rd in our cat., that did include a 2hr break at 8am with both of us off the course for bacon butties, in hindsight we probably didn't to stop for that long but were sick of all the sweet stuff and wanted something decent to eat!
