Weekly Rundown #113

"To be a really good ultrarunner, you have to be 
thinking all the time and working with the 
course and working with yourself."
Ann Trason

This week's Interview Tuesday was with Mike Silva, I talked to his wife Kim the week before

Speaking of interviews if you want to catch up on older ones you can do so here's This Week in Running: November 5, 2018's The Week That Was in Running: October 29 - Nov 4, 2018

And from the above Week in Running I found this interesting: if you have not already read it:
With regards to NYC - found this interesting: Second half split for Mary Keitany was 66:58, who won the women’s race in 2:22:48, at the 2018 New York City Marathon.  As a note her first half split was 75:50 and by the way the Official American record for the 1/2 marathon is 67:25 by Molly Huddle. Whereas Jared Ward who took top American honors in sixth in 2:12:25ran his second half in 66:59,  keep in mind he went out much faster at 1:05:25

Local runner Zack Beavin, who I interviewed here and did an update here, ran an Olympic Marathon Trials Qualifying time at the Indy Monumental Marathon a couple weeks ago and here is his report on that run

Keitany and Desisa win the NYC Marathon

A look at Fasted Workouts - I tend to do up to 2 hour workouts fasted, well I do have a cup of coffee with heavy cream so then technically not fully fasted,  and if longer use a modified Bullet Proof Coffee.  Also, on really long workouts - say 5-7+ hours I may also use some other things just to be topped up for a long day running or riding as well as trying out race day nutrition and also depends on how fast I may be planning on going.

A look at trail running in Nepal - The Annapurna 100

Something many probably do not practice, I know I do not,  and should for Ultras is walking

Setting goals can, and should, lead to further goals an not just stopping once completed: Why Run an Ultramarathon  to Find a Taller Peak

As I have mentioned a number of times, and yes I am working on a review, get a copy of Dr. Mark Cucuzzella's new book Run For Your Life and also check out it's accompanying website  If you do not think one person can make a difference look at what Mark has done in his area to re-educate on nutrition and health
