Join us for a discussion with author Tim Wills, about his bookThe Ultra Mile. The Ultra Mile describes what goes into running the ultra distances, why something so difficult is also appealing, and how really long distances like 100 miles are really a team effort. The book introduces us to different aspects of running although it is not an exhaustive resource on any one topic. The book is divided into 6 parts:
2. Preliminary training
3. The application of training
4. Training to simulate racing
5. Running ultra
6. The journey continues
