My first ultra -doing the 50k - The Vicar - think I have the same plan as you, I'm doing the Giantshead Trail Marathon at the end of June, then keep on running! Sounds like a really friendly, well organised run, so I won't have to worry about too much about any aspect except actually finishing
There doesn't seem to be any real info about it online anywhere tho - my folks live near Yeovil and I would like to check out some of the route beforehand if possible.
I am effectively a single mum,(hubby works away), and I'm running a trail marathon at the end of June. I can only train during the school day,(which i appreciate is way more than some people), but I can't seem to work out a plan.
Mon - usually do a long cycle ride with friends (40-50 miles)
Tue - tempo or efforts(hill or speed) hard work after cycling?
Wed - mid length off road run
Thu - ?
Fri - Long run inc. on and off road,(so as to rest over weekend)
I do sometimes get a jog in over the weekend running after the kids with their bikes etc. or I can do a Bootcamp style class on a Sunday morning.
Anyone comments,suggestions, any plans available anywhere online, thanks,I need some motivation!
I'm having lessons at the National Pool - they have a slot on a Fridy lunchtime which suited me, as well as at other times - £60 for 5 x half hour, I think - give them a call on 01792 513513- I just had to wait until they had a free slot. Otherwise the other local pool council pools all do adult lessons too, just that i was particularly restricted with when I could go, Good luck!
