ISO 50K ultra training plan
POSTED: 9/14/09 11:26 PM

I just registered for my first 50K ultra, the HAT run, in March 2010. I recently finished Ironman Louisville, and I'm very interested in finding a 50K ultra training plan that includes cross training (swimming/biking).

I found that tri training really helped me run a pain-free marathon, although about 30 mins slower than my average marathon time.

A number of the ultra training programs I've seen online have a very long run on Saturdays followed by a shorter (8-10 mile) run on Sundays. I'd much prefer to run long on Saturday and then follow it up with biking on Sunday or something of that sort. BTW - I'm registered for all 4 of the EX2 Backyard Burn 10 milers.

Any suggestions for an ultra training program?

Thanks!

This one is from the Annapolis striders. They have a very successful program. Check here and this will lead you to it.

I'm actually thinking of doing a 50k run out in CA in Feburary 2010 and need to train as well.

Any suggestions on some scenic fall courses in the dc area?
