Summary

This training plan will prepare you for a higher performance at your 100 mile running race. Developed by Bob Seebohar, a two-time Leadville 100 finisher (and 2009 Leadman finisher), this plan emphasizes the right amount of running combined with smart cross training and recovery to get you to the start line fresh.

This plan is meant for intermediate to advanced ultra runners who have participated in at least one 100 mile running race and are looking for a personal record performance. It is best if the athlete has been running at least a half marathon as their long run in training recently.
