Ultrarunning tips at home

I don’t know how long I’ll be able to keep up this blistering pace of one video per year but 2020 makes a massive 4 years straight. Here are some non-running ultrarunning things to think about. And some cows and a lawn mower in the background from the Kelly Farm where I’ve been now for over a month.

At the very beginning of my time back in Tennessee, right after Barkley was canceled, I did get out to Frozen Head for a 5 loop “No Barkley Barkley.”

    Great video! I’m just starting to get into Ultra Running and loved all the tips. My 1st ever 50k trail run got postponed so I ran it anyway on my own, so I got a kick out of your No Barkley Barkley video too! Thanks for sharing!

    Hi John,Some good little tips, I’m positive I read an article recently where you mentioned that you had done a lot of reading on positive thinking / mental training. Could you point me in the direction of the books you read please?

      Glad you got something from the tips, but unfortunately I believe you might be thinking of someone else on the books. I haven’t had time to pick up a book in years outside of a few directly related to a race or event I was about to do.

    good tips, especially around customising the pack and holding the poles on the bottom loops temporarily. I often moan at the [what are they called?] pockets with no bottoms, intended for the bottle straws.. never thought to stitch ’em closed. and the hair band loop around the bottle – good shout
