HOW DO YOU TRAIN ENDURANCE FOR ULTRA TRAILS OVER 200 KM?
It is a question that is often asked to the TRM Coaches by those who are approaching ultra distances. They wonder how they will cope with such incredible races. Obviously, no one during the training sessions, for example preparing a race like the Tor des Geants, will ever run 330 km. But yet it is clear for everybody that it is necessary to “train” the mental part, heart and legs to sustain a prolonged effort for hours and days. At last it is a mix of things: endurance, qualitative and specific jobs, general athletic training and nutrition, as well as mental training.
