Publisher's Summary

Marathons have become too easy for some runners. What was once the pinnacle of achievement in a runner's life is now a stepping stone for extraordinary adventure in ultramarathoning. The number of ultrarunners - those running distances of 50k (31 miles), 50 miles, 100k (62 miles), or 100 miles - is growing astronomically each year.
Dean Karnazes's Ultramarathon Man and Chris McDougall's Born to Run have inspired tens of thousands to try these seemingly superhuman distances. But to date, there has been no practical guide to ultramarathoning. Now, Bryon Powell has written Relentless Forward Progress, the first how-to manual for aspiring ultrarunners.
Powell covers every aspect of training for and racing ultra distances. This encyclopedic volume prepares runners for going farther than they have ever gone before and, in the process, shows them that they are capable of the "impossible."

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great info!

This book is packed with great information and advice on how to run an ultra. The training plan that comes with the book is simple and a great guide to begin a training program. If you're thinking about going the ultra distances. Check out this audio book!

Good for those with zero running knowledge

This is an average how to book on trail running. All of this information is online and probably easier to obtain than listening to the audio book. I would suggest buying the hard copy of this book vs the audio book if you really wan this. It is a basic instructional.
