Lol - yes you are right - sorry. It is. Fetch is a good bet to see them all - or buy the book, it's very good.

OK thanks guys. BTW there are iphone apps that beep on interval too. I would probably go that route as i can keep my phone charged with an external battery pack - my Garmin is SURE to die FAR before the end of the ultra.

Will report how it goes on my long run tomorrow!

SK - great news about your nephew! That's amazing I have run my 2 x 18 mile and 1 x 22 mile run just on feel so far. I know if I run between 10-10:30 I can complete them without feeling like i have done 10 rounds with Mike Tyson (as long as I fuel properly). I don't really look at the watch - i just go on feel but it does end up being about that pace. This will speed up as my fitness improves - ahead of London I ended up running them at 9:30 much to Shades's consternation lol

Mama - i bought their book but you can see the plans all over the internet. For example if you go to Fetch and click on the plans section you can see the layout, but it won't give you much details on how to run certain sessions. It's very straightforward though - run the slow days very slow and run the hard days really hard Here is the 18 weeks up to 55 miles per week plan for example:

I'm doing the Thames Trot 50 on Feb 7th. It's been flooded the last two years and they had to move a significant amount of the run on to roads (dull) both years. They ended up shortening it by 4 or 5 miles too which I imagine can be a little disappointing if you are trying to do your first 50 mile run. I'm hoping its dry - you never know

Shades - I'll be at Chester in spirit! I will try the 5:1 run walk on my 24 mile run tomorrow and see how it goes.

Run Walk strategy

Hi, I was reading today that run walk is a good strategy for a 50 mile plus race. This is news to me! The article I read recommended 5 mins run and 1 min walk from the very beginning of the race.The ultra I am doing is flat so just walking up the hills would result in no walking more or less. Any help appreciated.

  • Do you run/walk?
  • Is 5:1 (5 min run 1 min walk) a good frequency?
  • Do you start run/walk from the very beginning of the race?
  • How do you measure the 5 min / 1 min? Sounds like a silly question but doesn't looking at your watch or listening for a beep drive you insane over 50 miles?

Berlin is 27th September, 2015. 

In other news, I have been reading this morning that in an ultra it is a good idea to run 5 mins and walk 1 min from the very beginning. I've NEVER done this before. I have a 24 mile run scheduled for tomorrow. I might give it a go!

Just found out I have a place at Berlin marathon next year I am not expecting a fast time at Paris (it's only a couple of months after my first ultra) so I will target Berlin for a PB and make it my A race for next year.

I'm toying with the idea of following P&D 18 weeks up to 70 mpw after I recover from Paris. This gives me about 5-6 weeks of recovery time after Paris. Ramadan will fall right in the middle of the training but I will cross that bridge when I get to it.

I moved to a 4mm drop over a year ago and absolutely love it. It helped me run lighter on my feet and the improved running form carries through my highe drop shoes.
