Ask the Ultrarunner: Planning Rest Periods, Weights with MAF

March 16, 2012

Unfortunately we had some technical difficulties with the sound on this episode, so please forgive us. But the good news is, the info is all still in there… On this episode of ATU, Lucho answers your questions on rest/recovery periods and what they should entail/how to plan them, what to do if hitting a plateau with MAF, altitude and training, planning pace/intensity¬†for one’s first ultra, tempo runs, mixing in strength training/cycling when on the MAF plan, training in between three big back-to-back ultra races, and more. Ask your questions in the designated area on our facebook page!

  • Another good show, thanks…
    The common misconception is that oxygen concentration is reduced at elevation, which is false (as mentioned).
    But it absolutely is accurate to say there is "less oxygen" at higher altitudes in a given amount of volume (e.g., a lungful)
