RE: Marathon a day
I started running at age 30 and was the guy who earlier wrote about a sub80 HM and 5min mile.

I did a lot of endurance sports as a kid, cross country skiing and mountain bike racing. A lot.

It was during this year of ultra training that I finally grasped sport nutrition. That was SO liberating! I can now do centennials on the bike even out of shape and such. Refueling during activities longer than 3 hours is a science of its own.

Many distance runners could learn it as it requires introspection and perseverance.

I got the shits in every HM I tried and every tempo pace sends me to the toilet. So finally to get at *some* distance nutrition right was a success to me.

Refueling is the key to ultra distance finishing. Everything else comes second to that.


But ultra runners are to be avoided as it is all a bit mental with them.
