Marathon and an Ultra-Marathon

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

Here is a goal I have set for myself: run in a marathon next spring (May 31st is the last acceptable date) and an ultra by the end of next years Fall season. The ultra needs to be a 50k or more....get it up there so I can see it and work towards it constantly....I can now run for a steay 30 minutes at a 6.5 mph pace....the next goal is to get to an hour. The next goal after that is 30 minutes of hills, steep ones that we have here in the Rockies to boot. Then to get to an hour on hills. That should get me close to the marathon condition....that hour should be in the tank by the end of next March.....5 months from now....

    Hey,I read something and could not help but think of you. A lot of track and field athletes train at higher altitudes where there is less oxygen. Because by doing so,training at high altitudes, they can increase the number of red blood cells which will help them to perform for a longer period of time with little to no fatigue throughout.

    I remembered about the goals you told me about, that you are now writing about. I realize that you are very knowledgeable. However, I still wanted to share this with you, just in case you did not know it.
