The training starts

Like all good training plans the first day starts as a Rest Day, a wonderful 24 hours where the ultrarunner is seen to stand hours on end with his or her head in the fridge eating and drinking.

Yesterday's 24 miler was still in my legs this morning and I was up for a quick blat around the woods when I have realised that life has got in the way and I will miss Tuesday at the club to watch my daughter receive an award. So tomorrow I will go for a nice run around the area as I will be working on Wednesday night.

I have put a basic training plan together for GUCR 2011 and BOY, does it look an interesting read with approximately 1500+ miles to be run between now and the event with average weekly mileages of 50 mpw and it peaking at 75 miles per week towards the end.

The training plan revolves around weekly back-to-back runs with a 30 mile and 20 mile run at the end. I have plenty of races/challenges put in the mix to keep it bright and relish the challenge...GUCR here we come.
