share your ambitions/goals/training here on a 'newbie ultra' thread........
I also focus on just heading out the door - no watch, no plan, no time limit; perhaps a different location. usually does the trick, but definitely need time out sometimes ... the summer is lawsuits that time for me, the school holidays provide a perfect time to kick back a bit as I have no choice!
So when you are planning on running a distance for a 1st time how do you work out your timing just wing it or is McMillan still reasonably accurate / worth a peek at 100k sort of distances?
i did 50m in just under 12h but was sick on the day and think well I could have cracked 11h did a 4:36 marathon 3 weeks later, so looking at the wall next summer at 69m
trying to come up with a ballpark target, as it gives me something to aim at / gives me a clue for timings. Does 17-18 hours sound a sensible sort of target to try to aim for?
So thinking for my 50 was suggested I go through halfway in marathon plus half hour sort of time? for 69 m is it much slower than a 50 or similar sort of speed and just wing it
