I...*trying to get myself together from the small shock*...I saw that it was Leadville in your blow... WoW!!! I'm stunned and amazed! Of all the ultras, you did LEADVILLE! A big congrats to you Lori! And 1,5 years ago you were just an average runner (or maybe less?). What a development!

I just did Leadville...check out my blog on it. Who knows, maybe that'll be you in a year. A year and a half ago I didn't k ow "ultras" existed and my longest run ever was a 15k.

Thanks for the inspiring comment and advice Lori! I keep struggling. Consistency and patience are the keys for developing strength I guess. Wow...100 miles, good job! That' my mind, astronomical. But who knows, maybe I'll get there some day ;)

Yup, calves will be sore at first and a BIGGER yup i
On focusing on form and strength. You will be an awesome runner! I can't begin to tell you how much it has helped me. Finished my second 100 mile race yesterday and I can tell a huge difference in how quickly my legs are recovering compared to my last race. Last time it was 4-6 weeks before I could think about running again. The way my legs feel now I think less than a week.

I've just started running after reading Born To Run and I'm superhyped! I've done ONE running session so far and it was barefoot on an artificial-grass football pitch. I just had to go out and try some after all that inspiring technique facts from the book that keeps circulating in my head. How it was? A great feeling. Nothing like running with shoes, MUCH better. I tried to think of the basic principles; forefoot strike, back straight, shorter legmovements. I don't know if I got it right but it felt good. My calves are hurting a lot now, but I guess it's how it should be. My future plan? 2 running sessions a week(30 min or so) barefoot and one session of strength workouts at home. The running for me right now is all about technique.

To LET running this weekend-week teach me how to break through.  I'm not sure exactly what, but I'm pretty sure I'll know when it happens
