If you have finished the marathon and you’re looking for a new challenge, chances are thought about running Ultra Marathon has crossed your mind.
There are not many Ultra Marathon training plans out there and one of the reasons is that these events are so different in distance, terrain and even weather conditions, that it is virtually impossible to have some training plan that would cover all training needs on an endurance athlete.
This plan is no exception. It is more of a recommendation, a daily schedule of workouts, based on preparation stages that would get your body ready for a challenging event – 50-mile Ultramarathon. It includes the duration of workouts rather than distance to be covered – otherwise, it would not be possible to plan your busy schedule. The plan also refers to RPE 1-10 (Rating of Perceived Exertion) scale when describing workouts, however, it is based on the percentage of your calculated Threshold Pace. When you progress, you will be able to relate your own RPE to your HR zones, if you feel more comfortable sticking to exact numbers that your sports watch shows you.
