          Hmm, being a landlubber from the Chicago suburbs and only mild hills left from glaciers, I wonder how the hell to train for something like this? 

           

          How do these races differ from the Dances with Dirt series?

            DWD Devils Lake 50M / Glacial 50M- Likely close to many mountain races in total elevation change and difficulty factor - Just different.

             

            Mountain races you often climb for miles @ a time and decend for miles at a time - This allows you to get into a good rythm.  Glacial 50M - The biggest hill is probably 150 verticle feet.  It is constant change - Up 100 - Down 100 - up/down up/ down.  Glacial has @ 12,500 feet of elevation change in 50M.

             

            So - what can a flatlander do?

             

            Climbing can be simulated on a tm up to 15% and if you own it - put blocks under it and get it to 25-30% incline.  That is important, but not where us flatlanders will fail / suffer the most.  It is the downhills - the quad busitng - hope smashing - life draining downhills.

             

            How can we train for the downhills?  I am not sure.  Locally I have a steep 1/2 mile hill (30 minutes away) that I can repetitively walk up and run down for hours at a time.  My home town - 90 minutes away has a ski area with with @ 700 verticle feet and a state park at the top.  I plan on parking at the bottom of the road up - running / power hiking up the road - then running down the ski hill - back up the ski hill and back down the road - then repeat amny times.

             

            So 1-2x a week on the closer big hill

            2x a month on the ski hill

            2x a month on the Glacial 50 mile trails (60 minutes away)

             

            April - July to prepare for Leadville

              It is the downhills - the quad busitng - hope smashing - life draining downhills.

               

               

              Big grin  Can you be more specific, please?

                Damn Flatlanding, no good brothers-in-law from Illinoise. 

                 

                Hows about I take a baseball bat to your quads 2x a week - Should toughen them up

                    Hmm, after hearing about your training schedule, the bat to the quads is sounding like the easy route...  Last couple years training for Boston I ran snake rd in Lake Geneva, which has some brutal hills, but I could not imagine running down a 700ft hill once much less multiple times.  Must be the cheese curds that keeps those joints limber Smile
