You've tackled 5k, 10k, 13.1, 26.2 and now you want to go even longer. Where do you start? This webinar will introduce you to the basic concepts of training for an ultramarathon and specifically deal with the transition from marathon training to beyond 26.2. We'll look at progressions to various distances, samples of various training weeks and schedules, the differences in terrain that most marathoners encounter when heading to their first ultra, and incorporating cross training and other workouts into a schedule to keep runners healthy in the transition.
