Talk me into (or out of) a ultra distance trail run.
Ok ultra trail running douches (this is an affectionate term for me so if you are offended just fuck right the hell off you pussy), here's your chance. Tell me what I am missing. Tell me how long it would take me to prepare for one of these fucking things. My thought is to tackle the 27km Frosty
this year and then the 50km next year, with the potential for a few others between the two. Full disclosure:
- I have run 1 stand alone marathon in 3:53 something. It sucked balls. Hard. But mostly because my husband was running beside me screaming that I was "never going to qualify for Boston if [I] didn't stop walking!!!" at the 15km mark while I was trying to walk off a potential torn calf (confirmed torn calf post race).
- My last IM was in November and went relatively well because I worked hard on mental prep, but my "fitness" since then....well, let's just say it's much easier to lose fitness than it is to gain it.
I do not have the $ to work with a coach so would be doing this on my own unless someone here has the balls to try and tell me what to do.
