Last week I got a tweet from a listener with what I thought was a simple question:
"What was your biggest ultramarathon mistake, and what did you learn from it?"
Thinking it would make for a good topic for Trail Talk, I sat down to decide what my biggest mistake had been. As it turns out, I've had many ultra-sized ultramarathon mistakes, and it was impossible to just pick one.
So in today's episode, I'm sharing not just 1, but 6 of my biggest race day mistakes, what I learned from them, and most importantly, how you can avoid making those mistakes yourself.
Just a few days out from my next 50k, this episode is all about final preparations. What my taper looks like, how I get the mind primed and ready to race, and how I approach pre and mid race nutrition.
I give the full rundown of everything going down mentally and physically the final two weeks before the Steep Canyon 50k.
