Ask the Ultrarunner: From Interval Workouts to Mental Game

November 21, 2011

Another packed episode of Ask the Ultrarunner with Lucho answering your questions on a good fanny pack model for a 5k, what “full recovery” means with interval training, gauging when to run again after strength training, the best way to get your stomach back when it goes south in an ultra, adjusting intensity to compensate for the diminishing return of training at altitude, intervals that would be helpful at this altitude, combining ultra and marathon training, Lucho’s philosophy on the mental approach to marathon/ultra racing and what impact do you think one’s mental disposition has during a race, analyzing/improving form, hill training for Leadville, speed training for a marathon, should you do night running to train for an ultra, should you “practice” bonking in training, and much much more.
