The lead topic of today's show was how to move forward after missing a run.  Do you just let it go?  Make it up tomorrow?  Add it to next week?  We also talk about mental limitations keeping us from physical possibilities. Enjoy the Becoming Ultra show, produced by Athlete On Fire.

Ian and Janet are talking about what it takes mentally to not let the increasing miles overwhelm you as a new runner training for an ultra. How do you think about the 40 miles a week that seems tough when you will be running 50 in a day?  We also talk about the best practices in managing relationships and the holidays with so many miles on the training regimen. Lastly, what would a world that was made to run every day look like?  WE have fun with this topic.  Enjoy today's episode of Becoming Ultra!
