100 Mile Training Plan

Andy's training plan

I really want to break the 100 mile barrier – I only managed 55 the last time and this was mainly due to the weather and the conditions I felt good, I just don’t think I had enough fluids and race day prep. I am sticking to the a very similar training plan this time.

As well as running I will also be working on my core strength and basic fitness.

While I haven’t done much running in 2019, I did set myself a challenge to walk 1,000 miles. We are not even in November and I have passed 900 miles so I will achieve this goal.

While 90% of the training will be to do with time on feet and distance covered.

A key aspect of making sure the day is successful – is preparations, so I will be doing things like eating while running to see what works, drinking and trying a whole range of products / natural things to see which my body likes the best.

“I truly believe in hard work, dedication, and self-discipline.”

Short fast training
Effort 100%
Medium Runs
Effort 90%
Long runs
Effort 50%
Races
Effort 80%
  • Short runs - to build up speed
  • Medium Runs - usually Thursday nights
  • Long runs - done on a weekend, all about time on Feet
  • Races - I will be doing some offiicaal races as training runs, to test things like speed, strategy and eating

It all starts with the right Plan

Race

Sounds simple, but even writing down some of the big numbers put a little bit of fear in me.

This will not be easy, it will be difficult, but I also know this is a plan and I need to stick as closely as possible but not get down if I miss a run by a few miles, those extra few miles could cause injury – I will be listening to my body.

I am running this with a friend of mine and I know his plan is completely different to mine as he has his kids ever other weekend so he has factored that in.

This is my plan and one I think is doable for me. Feel free to edit, use, ignore it.

In the coming days, I will add a link below to a Google doc – meaning you can easily get the data.
