26 Weeks – Episode 8

It’s week 8 in Chris’ training to run 100 miles at the Beyond Limits Ultra in April and finally, he realizes he needs a deload/recovery week. He is paying the price after building for zero to 20 miles in just 7 weeks as he battles Achilles pain in both legs. Luckily a light week of training filled with rest, rolling and stretching allows his body to heal enough to enjoy running in Reck Rock Canyon and the Strip in Las Vegas, NV.

    Hi Chris,

    Your videos have become a terrific source of inspiration for me as I am training for a 50k this Summer. My journey began last August when I weighed in at 230 lbs! Roughly 120 runs later, I am hovering just above 200 lbs. While it is not hard for me to stay motivated, I feel like I am stuck at my current weight. That 200 pound mark is so elusive!

    Keep up the great work. I look forward to seeing your upcoming episodes.
