Hello there guys, I'm new to arrse, ex-serving however been out for a few years now so I have drifted quite comfortably into civilian life. I have been bitten by the ultra -marathon bug in a way that I never was in the Army, there PT was just a pain in the arrse! I completed the Jurassic Coast Challenge a few months ago, 3 marathons in 3 days, then went on the the Jurassic 24 which was the same course in 24 hours, again here I just dribbled in under the cut-off time. I have just entered what is called the Viking Ultra and quite honestly I'm wondering if it is a bridge too far. 149 miles, 40 hours. Techniclly less than 4 miles an hour however I'm pretty phased by the whole idea if it. Question is, very simply, guys i need some help on this. I'm not a running nut, i don't know all that much about nutrition, diet, training plans etc ..... i really would like some advice. I'm runnig 4 ten milers a week, 30's at the weekend and doing a massive ammount of CV in the gym in between. Distance running I hit 50's quite comfortably however 3 of them back to back is a bit daunting. I also run /march with weight 15miles, 2 hours 30 with a 35lb rucksack. Any ultra-marathon / endurecne event guys out there, I'd really like to chat and find out how to build a structured training regime and maybe swap ideas / tips or goad each other on to more silly and ridiculous events! My Viking Ultra is less than a week after next years Jurassic Coast Challenge and quite honestly the timing couldn' t be worse but I aim to do them both. any help, tips or advice would be more than appreciated.
