Between now and July of 2011, I'm out to prove (or disprove) the following:
- That the most important element of ultra running (or ANY running, for that matter) is Biomechanical Excellence.
- Second most important is "Fuel, Hydration, Electrolytes". Third is training.
- You can be a top-level ultra runner and still run fast: <2:30 marathon, <32:00 10K, <26:00 5-mile, <16:00 5K. In fact, it may be required.
- Maybe the WORST TWO CONVENTIONAL WISDOMS floating around the ultra world are:
- That you need to FLY on downhills in a trail ultra in order to "save your quads".
- That you should "sit back" (in a posterior pelvic tilt) for maximum stride "efficiency".
