I’ve made a plan!
It’s not very extensive, or full, or complete, but it is there!
The colours relate to where I can and can’t run. Fitting ultra training around a job, holidays, days out at the rugby and life is hard, so I find it useful to mark when I can and can’t run. The green days symbolise important weekends of back to back to back runs. Where I’ll do 3 longish runs back to back.
I’ve planned the important increase in back to back mileage and I plan to fit in between these an increase in training days and also rest days.
I probably won’t fill out each of the days to the minute detail as I know that a plan is hard to follow when things crop up I will need to think on my feet and change. I’m also not convinced that I will be 100% injury free. So perhaps not filling it out is also psychological too.
Cape Wrath isn’t far away but I do have time to ramp up my time on feet, my running when tired, and plan the equipment needed.
