 well and hard over a period of years and avoid injury, 
you are going to get better”

It is not just runners/walkers who have historically done ultra distances - how about the Ultra-Marches of the 1940's

John Kelly the 15th finisher of the Barkley Marathons and also a multiple Ironman Triathlon finisher will turn Pro for one race at the Ironman Arizona then step back from triathlons to focus on Ultras

Does concentrating on running movement make you less efficient - I know often the more I think about how I run the more uncoordinated I tend to feel
