Thank you all so much for the encouragement! THe race i plan on running is the Trails for Tails race in PA. I think one of the hardest things for me is getting enough fuel in me befoer and after the long runs. I have a pretty good routine with using gels, nuun, and bars durring my runs. But does anyone know some calorie dense foods that arent too filling that i could eat to make sure im not depelting myself too much?
ALthough im not new to running im deff new to the ultra scene but feel like its the PERFECT fit for me. I've never been one to enjoy any form of short running and prefere scenic runs over crowded roads or tracks (only hampsters should enjoy running in circles) Any way, Im only 19 but have been running since i was about 11 (come from a distance running family) Im getting ready to start training for my 4th 1/2 marathon in May and am obsessing over doing a 40 miler in september. My question is am I going insane trying to do this? I need some support because people look at me like i have 4 heads when i tell them my running plan. i know im menatally strong enough but i dont want to get an injury (other than mild shin splints twice in my life i have been injury free)
So any advice, encouragement, or tips would make my day!
