If you read my last post, you'll know I'm gradually ramping up my training for the ultra marathon I'm currently training for - yes I know I've since realised it is a stupid idea too - but it's for MacMillan, so a good cause.
Now I'm able to start building some distance into my training regime I've been thinking about just how much distance is enough.
The Ultra Marathon is 105km or about 65miles (although an ultra I believe is classified as anything over a marathon - I wish I signed up to the 27mile ultra then!). Therefore, you can imagine the training load can get quite heavy. I'm quite time pressed splitting my time 3 days per week in my role as a bariatric dietitian in Oxford, which is a 3.5 hour round trip each time not to mention the full working day, and on the other days trying to build Mark Green Nutrition, plus other commitments that are just part of life. There seems like there's always something to do with little time for training.
