More Badwater Training

Yesterday I had some very good training sessions. In the morning I did my 20 minutes weights, and in the evening I had a great workout on the treadmill. I started with a 3 mile warm-up and continued with 5 minutes intervals switching between running at incline 1 and walking on an incline of 5 up to 12. Since I'm planning to walk all the uphills at Badwater, I thought I'd better get my legs used to walking at a reasonably fast pace. After that I relaxed in the sauna for 30 minutes.


  1. Just wanted to say hi Iris...sounds like your Badwater training is going great. I bet your getting excited. I know I am and can't wait for the race to start. Maybe next year Badwater for me. Best of luck I'll be following your progress.

  2. I am also enjoying following your training for Badwater. I'm looking to pick up any training tips I can as I work toward my goal of racing Badwater one day. Best of luck!

  3. Thank you guys. Yes, the training is done. Now I can't wait to go back to Badwater.
    Sue, congratulations on your awesome run at the Worlds 24 hour championship. Way to go! Looking forward to see you on the trails again.
    Best of luck with your running to both of you.
