Hi Lynda, I have a question about your view on optimal number of races that one could do before peaking at a 24 solo event.
I notice that C. Eatough seems to me to be doing nothing but well spaced 100 mile and stage races then finishing off his season with a 24 Solo. Do you think this is intentional?
How may 24 solo races did you do before your second place world championship performance a couple years ago? Did you do any 100 milers before?
This topic could be a great article. What are your thoughts? Thanks for all your advice because I realize this is how you make a living and comments in the forum are non-billable.

If you are experienced and know how to accurately pace and execute a 24 hour race, 0-1 practice 24's leading up to the peak 24 is optimal. 24's spend fitness in a big way, they do not build. Ideally within

Thanks Lynda. Good info! I am suprised about the 6 month figure and to be honest it validates some of my experiences after a 24 hour effort.

I'll ask this here because I think it is along the same topic.
But How much rest should be had

Recovery from endurance races depends on how deep you went at the race and how good your nutrition during and post race was. Times can vary widely from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
