OK, HURT 100 runners, we are getting close. Down to 37 days before the big run. How many of you have gotten in a couple of 40 mile runs? Are you planning anything longer? I think the longest training run I did for HURT was 50 miles. Back to back long days worked well for me. It is all about time on your feet and getting your body conditioned to handle the stress of a 100 mile run. With that being said, dialing in your race day nutrition, hydration, and electrolytes should also be set. Race day is no time to experiment. If you are trying new approaches, do it now, while training. I know, I am preaching to the choir. You all know this already right?
The tough thing about HURT training–fitting in time for family and all of the other obligations during the Holiday's. Make that work though. Family time is very important. The great thing about HURT training, no worries at the Holiday buffet and concerns about putting on a few extra pounds.
Ok, this week per Cheryl, HURT Training starting at the Nature Center at 6:00 a.m. You know the drill. Post below in the Comments if you are doing something different.
A few other things. First, I apologize for all the crappy spam comments we keep getting on the site. I try to delete them as fast as I can and they still keep coming. Our host, Typepad has some controls in place and bans the IP address once they are blocked. I don't want to block comments so we deal with it as best we can.
Also came across this and want to share it with you. See below.
