Ive got a quick question for all you ultra runners (walkers?) out there that has been niggling at me for a while now.
At the moment im enjoying running half marathons (in a respectable 2 hrs) and am in the training process to beat this. As I was a walker/mountaineer in a previous life I enjoy covering many miles over varying terrain which is why ultra's appeal to me.
I was wondering if , as ultras are the next distance on from marathons (generally) should I be competing in marathons first before I tackle ultras?? I ask because I think that marathons are supposed to be run in its entirety where as ultras are a run walk mix (please correct me if I am wrong). I could manage the mix of running and walking but im not too sure about running 26 miles straight off.
I do apologise if this is a silly question to all of you seasoned marathon/ultra runners.
