Was just looking for some insight in prepping for an Ultra (50 miles).
How important is it to get in 3+ hour runs? Looking at some training plans, the mileage is right in line with what I do anyways, my preps are usually high mileage over the 7 days of the week instead of the pick spikes on the weekend.
So instead of running, 2 hours on Saturday, 5 hours on Sunday (for example). I would just do 4 1:45 runs over the course of the weekend.
I'm coming from IM training, so I've got big volume in the bank and know that my engine can carry me over 50 miles. Just unsure on the "importance" of getting in those BIG runs. Thanks, Vinny
