I read the training plan for Umstead 100 and my training for Destin 100 should be at least a 6 month ordeal. My mileage should already be averaging around 70-90 miles a week and it is. The Sunday long run is the most important part of my training plan. Sunday long runs should be 40 miles or more and I would like to train in Virginia Beach to mimic the feel of running 100 miles on the sand.

Months To Train

August - September- October-November- December-January- February 15 Race Day

Before I start training for this 100 miler I will run a free 50 mile race this month on the 26th called Viaduct Trail Ultramarathon. My training for the 100 mile race will be the same running routine I am on.. 10 to 15 miles a day 4 days a week and one day probably Sunday will be a very long run around 40 miles or so. Friday will be called FriHill, the day I run hills for speed work.

    An excellent 100 is the MMT in May, but you really need to love rocks. And ascents. And more rocks. I have attempted it 3 times. The TWOT runs are no joke either, you really have to love running in the mountains. Do you train on mountain trails (shenandoah national park or Massanutten)?
