Training Runs

A great question was brought up in the comments on the last post, and since Lori is on an internet fast, she asked me to address it. The question was regarding training for Ragnar and if in your training you should do more than one run in a 24 hour period to train.
The answer is YES.
In your training for the Ragnar, at least 2 separate times you should run twice in a 24 hour time period to help your body get ready for running your respective legs. So a run in the morning and a run in the afternoon/evening that same day is definitely recommended. Tally ho! It's going to be great!

  1. Hi Wasatch Back Rockstars,

    I just wanted to mention Operation Kids is the official charity of Ragnar. 100% of all donations will go to Best Buddies in Utah.

    Each team who raises $360 will receive a Best Buddies "I See You" bracelet with their race packet on race day, and will achieve the Ragnar Raiser distinction. That will allow 12 Best Buddies pairs to participate in the 5k walk/run next spring.

    Each team who raises $4,500 will receive the Best Buddies bracelet, enable 12 Best Buddies pairs to participate in the walk/run and will provide the seed funding to open a school chapter, as well as achieving Ragnar Life Changer status.

    The team who raises the most money for Best Buddies will receive a voucher for a team entry into any Ragnar Relay in the next 12 months (including Wasatch Back 2010).

    You can donate at

    We hope your team has a blast out there and feel free to stop by Operation Kids booths at the race.

    We’ll see you guys out there!
