Exploring what it takes to become an ultra endurance athlete

Training Strategy

In this episode, I discuss my training strategies for building up to running the 444mi of the Natchez Trace Parkway. Essentially, I am working towards maintaining an 80-120 mile per week base by springtime, then simply maintaining that until closer to the event. At that point, I will start adding running days to my week (currently only running 5) and evening out the daily mileage load across all days. I'm thinking I might start doing this around May. What do you think? Does this seem reasonable? Have you had any personal experiences within your own training to suggest I should take a different approach?
