hoping for some guidance from you pros as to where and how to start on the ultra path! I have just completed my challenge of 2 marathons in a month and have discovered that far from wanting to stop I would love to go further. I am definately in to distance over speed and living in Derbyshire I am spoilt for trail runs.
so I guess my questions would be - where now with the training? Any ideas on a good first time ultra? And tips in general for the step from marathon to ultra. I am quite excited about upcoming the distance but know I need to seriously looks at training/nutrition etc.
hopefully just keeping up with this forum will keep me on track.
Think I am a non responder - I run to maintain weight, if I didn't run I would be size of a house. Would love to now lose some extra pounds to improve my running. Really hard as spend most of my time starving, downside of marathon training. I am convinced that I could know some considerable time off my times if I wasn't carrying extra pounds. Would love help, but know ultimately it has to come from me and my motivation!
