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,
