What peak training for a 100-mile mountain ultra looks like
Wow that’s crazy about the hallucinations you had. You are an incredible ultra runner & others have learned so much from you sharing these epic experiences!
Great article! I have my second 100 mile “attempt” coming up in 3 days! Ive knocked out a couple of 50k’s and a 100k since my first 100 mile DNF….I used your book a lot through my training👍👍😉
I have no doubt you’re going to crush Run Rabbit Run! This is a fantastic approach to your training. I learned so much from reading it, thank you for sharing. Seize the night! :)
Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us! I'm not there yet, but would like to be. (the longest I've run is 50K) I just received your book a week ago and look forward to reading and gaining more knowledge about Ultras.
That documentary made me cry!
Can't wait to follow your training and race day Sarah. Thanks for sharing as always!
Upstate Ny and willing to travel not sure about doing my first ultra at altitude 🤣. But working on my 50 states and still need Colorado. Just ordered the book will be a good treat after 5 12s in an ER😬thank you
Alright you’ve got me. Looking for spring early summer ultra and getting your book when I get off this work travel week gig. Any suggestions in the north east?
Run rabbit 🤣💪❤️sounds amazing
Good luck in the race - loved your insight into what you need to do to prepare for such an epic run.
Just as I admire Jill Homer, I admire what you are doing. Excellent, enjoyable letter.
Thanks for giving us an inside look into ultra training. My longest race was the AR50 miler some time ago; I’ll leave the 100s to you! The best advice I got was doing back-to-back long runs which felt brutal at first but gradually became a way of life. And I always met the ultra training goal: tired legs!
That “How Run 100 Miles” video is one of my all time favorites, I try and watch it annually. Have a blast at Run Rabbit Run. I’ve personally found that the races that I over plan I do the worst and am frustrated by. The more I let go and treat it as an adventure into the unknown, taking what the day gives me, things seem to flow much better. This years training for the Bear 100 seems to be stronger than last years IMTUF training, so I’d love to have a time closer to 30 hours as opposed to 35 hours, but who knows how it will all unfold.
New light...hmmm. I know youre a UD fan but you should borrow a UA belt light. It’s a really great tactical tool and RRR as you know is rife with trip hazards. Game changer in my opinion
