sound like the 24km adventure race I just did. Although the middle was the boggy, bushy part and the last 6km was all uphill - nightmare! Although it was very hard, I too am totally hooked on trail running. I am from Scotland and when I lived there, never even thought about all the opportunities for great trail running there. I only started doing it here in New Zealand after living in the Southern Alps and having no choice, and now live in another mountainous region where the trails are just awesome!! I am looking forward to checking out all the trails I have missed in Scotland when I go back for Christmas!
Hmmm well I don't eat much processed food at all, just the odd pizza every so often. It's really just the sweets and chocolate then I guess ahhh I will try but I am definitely addicted! I am not overweight or anything but I think I would definitely benefit by cutting out some junk food!
Hi everyone! just looking for a wee bit of inspiration and advice. I just finished training for an 24km trail race here in NZ which I comppleted last week. I trained much harder for this than I have most other races I've done, well just more focussed I suppose, and did pretty well (top15). It is coming into Winter now and I live in a place which is going to get very snowy soon. I need some advide of what to do now basically!
I want to increase distance as I want to start upping mileage for a marathon . As I am travelling, it is hard to say when I will do this marathon but eventually in the next couple years. I have gotten to 18 miles so far. But perhaps more importantly I really want to increase strength in my legs as well as speed.
What kind of training should I be looking at? What kind of hill sessions? How many speed sessions? Only one long run? etc etc.
I used to do short intervals but I want to start doing longer ones but don't know how long.... ahhhh so many questions, sorry!
