First Ultra - training plan for multi loop

Posted: 13/05/2014 at 07:39

many thanks, what are my likely issues going to be with stopping for breaks?  I have never done multiple runs in a day, I assume I may to do some stretching before starting out on each session if I have had a break?

I have never 'eaten' on runs before, only gels, so I am looking forward to testing out on the 16wk training plan I have downloaded.  I think I was just planning on drinks, but yes I think you may be right and I will need to think about eating.  I am good at eating…..

5m loops which is why I thought I could give it a good go. Having read the links posted above I realise I hadn't thought about the whole experience / equipment, only the distance.

Many thanks, they are great, I have been doing some google searches for training plans/diet etc, but was put off some of the other threads when they seemed like they had been going for some time.  I will do now though, thanks again.

First Ultra - training plan for multi loop

Following the success (well I finished) of London Marathon I have just paid to run the Joust.  A 24hr multi lap ultra.  I kept looking at it last year, but have bitten the bullet, because when looking at last years results, at worst I may be last which could be about 5th, that is 34000 places higher than at london and I am sure I can run 5.1m loop a good few times.

Can anyone recommend a training plan for this type of run?  Would I just pick up my marathon plan and try to put some breaks in between to stimulate race day conditions?

What are the likely issues I might experience?  cramps in-between?

Any advice on training for this (or running it) would be appreciated,

Hi there, last year no one on the rw stall knew what I was talking about when I asked about leaving stuff, what do I need to do?

red pen 9 was full of fancy dresses and those expecting to walk, there is something very humbling about being overtaken by someone dressed as a rhino.

Once it starts, you will finish, it will just be a matter of how quickly. There is no way you will quit. There will be some tough moments, but everyone will have them.

good luck

Chris, what training plan is it that you are following that recommends doing 26m?  I haven't seen one that goes past 22.  This also seems very near your marathon date.

Last year I was 44m to cross the start, I may move to pen 8 this year with my (unrealistic) expected finish time.

How do you mentally break down the mileage?

26.2m seems overwhelming
