Ultra Runners

1

At least another week off :( (Read 267 times)


Go Pre!

    Hopefully, back for some short runs soon. I hate time off! Torn tibialis muscle. Fall Ultra and several marathons may not happen. Oh well, there's always 2013!

            Take it easy.  Easy to reinjure the next few weeks.

              Just looked at your log.  Talk about not taking it easy Smile, looks like you are getting in some awesome training!


              Go Pre!

                plan is 30-40 minutes tops per day for a couple of weeks. Then, keep that going but add one longer run in. See how that goes. Lots of biking too. As shopping therapy, I bought a new road bike to keep me inspired.

                  Don't mean to hijack this thread.  Yeah, I haven't been injured and I'm getting in a lot of miles.  Curious to see if it will translate to fast ultra times this fall.  I'm trying to offset my advanced age (53) with more training but I'm not sure it will.  Superior 50 is in 3+ weeks.
