Thursday Training Plan – WUU2K 62km ULTRAMARATHON Training Plan (Advanced 18 week Plan – Start 15 Mar 21)
The Wellington Urban Ultra 2k (WUU2K) is a trail running event around the hills of the capital. The 2k refers to the altitude gain over the 43km version…..notch that up a bit closer to 3k for the 62km edition!!!
Designed for Experienced Trail Runners who are looking to participate in the WUU2K, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to finish the WUU2K COMFORTABLY.
Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full Marathon distance events and my success coaching hundreds of runners.
Starting 18 weeks before the WUU2K (on 23 April 2018), this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week includes four runs and a stretching session. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).
Prior to using this plan, you should be able to run comfortably for two hours continuously.
Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.
