Today we dig into the world of the backyard ultra! We talk about what they are, how they can be a great stepping stone into ultra running and hear from listeners who have done them before and have more planned in! We discuss fuelling, mental preparation and how to keep going hour after hour after hour...! Paul also tells us about his lake district adventures last weekend and the fun of running up and down mountains (or not!).

As always also go through our week of running and cover some recent race results, shout outs to listeners and some future topic suggestions. If you have any results you want us to cover or topics for future episodes, get in touch, or if you are interested in being coached by Paul, please email us or connect on any social media. We will back every Monday with a new episode and here is how you can connect with us to help build the running partners community;
