You might get some inputs from members/moderators with similar training experiences.
Given your goals, I think it would be good to contact UA Coaches –
I’m looking for some advice regarding training for objectives that are potentially years away.
I’m hoping to enter my first Sky race (either SkyLagnes or ResegUp) in 2023, and my rough plan is: 4-day Intro to Skyrunning course in April 2022, then a 3-day Skyrunning camp in Romsdal in August 2022, and then progress to doing my first Sky race in 2023.
My current race experience is a 50km Ultra with 950m/3100ft of elevation gain, and my current training limitations are being based in a very flat city with access to some fairly hilly trails by public transport.
I’m currently doing Mike Foote’s Big Mountain Plan with the plan to focus on building base (replacing the Z3 workouts with more ME etc.) but to be frank, I’m unsure how to adapt my training beyond repeating the base period over and over again.
I’d appreciate some guidance on how to adapt my training to achieve those goals in the future, and how to programme training over many months and years to meet those goals.
P.S. note to mods, if this question is something that is better addressed with a coaching call then I’d appreciate an email address to reach out to arrange.
