comment Training for an ultramarathon without hills
Hi, Wlod :-) Thanks for the comments --- I think I shall write what I have learnt during the year --- but yes, definitely, running on a treadmill is a far better idea than running frowsty stairway :-)

comment How do I know if I'm training too hard?
(cont) I may guess this may be another reason why we feel "exhausted" after lifting weights --- I simply switched to other disciplines.

I had similar problems when I used to lift heavy weights. I don't have any professional advice, but can tell you what works for me: a) when after my workouts I feel mentally exhausted, I eat a few tablespoons of raw honey (ok, maybe a bit more than "a few" :-) --- generally it helps (this is perhaps to low glycogen), b) even if I know how to breath during heavy-weight lifting, my inhalation/exhalation is far better during other sport activities (like running, biking, swimming, crossfit) (cont)

I tried these exercises and they were easy for me, so I guess there must be a problem with something else. Anyway, thanks for your advice!

comment Training for an ultramarathon without hills
Sarge, I've just come from a 2-day excurse to Polish mountains (Tatry) and must admit that you're absolutely right in your last sentence --- actually, I can't run down-hills! The biggest problem was that while I'm a typical forefoot striker, when running down-hills I was unable to land on my forefoot without losing stability. In the end I injured my knees and foot... Another (minor :-) problem was that with incline about 30% my run was slower than a walk :-(
