I completed my first marathon this april (VLM), and only actually started running last year. But I am completely hooked at it, and am now looking for something new to challenge myself, and am finding myself drawn to the whole ultra-marathon scene.
I am aiming to run an ultramarathon in January 2011-it is 45 miles. Basically, I was hoping for some advice as to how to train for this.
I normally run a long run on sunday....i'm building gradually back up and am now on the 14 mile mark.
I do an interval speed session on thursday, and a tempo run (normally averaging 5 miles) on tuesday....other days, I tend to swim.
I don't think this training regime is adequate though....should I be doing several long runs in one week?
What should my weekly mileage be exactly? and speed? sorry with all the questions, but I feel a bit unsure as to what I'm doing!
Hope you can help
