I’ve finally made it through the last of the running before and after videos (64 people in total). I hope to review them with each of you in class on Monday night and Tuesday. Overall about 10% of people are already looking really good and are ready to add some distance, 80% of people made improvements in the right direction and will be good to go with some more skills and drills, and the final 10% of people still have some solid work ahead of them. In any case, for 3 hours worth of work you can’t complain. The next step from here is to continue with regular skills and drills 2-3 times a week and for those interested re-shoot video in 5-6 weeks.

If the video above makes you think to yourself: “Giddi up, I want to run an ultra”. Here are some sites worth checking out for 2012:

Canadian Death Race
Annapurna 100
Western States
Hard Rock
Leadville 100
Angeles Crest
or find your own brand of unpleasantness at Ultra Marathon

Apparently you just run for an extended period of time. It’s supposed to be wild:)
