because of this thread i bought his book 'ultra marathon man: confrssions of an all-night runner' a few days ago. i am about halfway through it. i knew ultra running existed but this book is providing me with impressive insight into the sport.
whats interesting is that he isn't overtraining. no overuse injuries or anything. makes me rethink what i thought i understood about training capacity. in an interview with him he said that after a big race he will go out and run the next day. he said getting the blood flowing & drinking alot of waters aides his recovery. i have been using running & bike riding as active recovery for my strength & metcon training the past few years & it definitely helps get rid of soreness. i just wonder about things like blisters & losing toenails. that has to take its toll on the body.
