Ok, I'm seriously considering the Kent 50 Mile Challenge in July. The furthest I have ever ran is a marathon, Edinburgh (3.50) in May and Loch Ness (4.11 - injured through ITBS so had to run/walk last half) in October.
I run about 40mpw and am currently working towards the Brass Monkey half in Jan and then will begin marathon training again for Edinburgh in May 2010.
Is it completely insane to think that I can race Edinburgh, then be ready for 50 (52) miles 8 weeks later? Would I mainly follow a marathon plan with perhaps some longer mid distance runs and be able to focus on the back to back sessions with the time I have left? Both marathon campaigns have involved 5 long runs totalling over 100, longest being just over 22 miles.
Too crazy to even contemplate right now?? Put thoughts of an ultra off until next Autumn/Winter?
Thanks for any advice
