DESCRIPTION


This 50K training plan includes my tried and true, scientifically-based and proven workout sequence to give you the endurance and stamina that an ultra race demands.

You'll improve your endurance with progressing long runs and I'll have you run back to back long runs on many weekends so you get used to running on tired legs.  I'll have you do some test runs so you can try out your gear and nutrition plan and I'll boost your stamina and running economy with my specialty workouts. As with all my plans, I'll have you perform several race-specific workouts so you really dial in goal pace and you’ll do simulation runs over similar terrain as your race course.


PREREQUISITE TRAINING


Before starting, you should be able to run 50-60 minutes on your regular runs and at least 90 minutes on your long runs.


MCMILLAN PACES


For each and every run, I'll provide the exact pace range for each run/workout (integrated from the McMillan Running Calculator). I'm also making your plan really flexible so it can flow with your life. You can easily move runs around based on your life schedule.


FREE PREHAB INCLUDED


In addition to the run training, I'm also going to have you perform our strength training routine that syncs with your run training as well as my form drills to help you improve your running form and learn to run fast. These "prehab" programs are included with your plan and build you into a strong, supple, injury-resistant runner.
