- Christmas mood!
Albeit the hot weather here doesn?t quite put me in the traditional
Scandinavian Christmas mood, I can certainly feel the Australian ditto:
- as I due to own fault was starting my run today mostly on empty stomach
with 40km to next shop I expected a bit of a difficult stage.
At halfway I was presented a hot fresh meal from a passing forest worker
with family while I was filling up water at a rest place :-)
Thanks, Unknown friend!!
A few km later another small meal and a talk about the run. No problem
getting through a stage like that!
4. December running tip:
Even at the longest ultra distances you can benefit from occasionally
adding fast pace to your training.
- be it 5, 10km or longer units of stabile high pace; 1, 2 or 3km high
speed intervals w. jog breaks in-between or group-dynamic driven bursts of
The fast pace will make the usual speed feel easier and the variation can
add to your joy of running.
Use fantasy in creating your own sets of intensive training blocks -
fantasy being the best tool to success besides persistence :-)
