Merry Christmas to all! I’m planning to do a 500km (310 miles) fastpacking thru-hike end of May, early June. I was thinking to combine a strength program with a running program but I’m not really sure mostly regarding the running program. I’ve been training since last year for another thru-hike doing some core exercises and runs long hikes but for this year I would like to follow a more consistent plan rather than doing generic staff. Do you think perhaps I should be looking for other kinds of programs? I’ve been running z1-z2 regularly for the past 2 months.
Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

An ultramarathon plan can be used as a good basis for fastpacking adventures for those who plan to do a fair amount of running during those adventures. But they require some modifications to provide optimal preparation. I can create a custom training plan for you if you’re interested. This service is more costly than our readymade offerings, though.
Right on. Below is a link to more information about the service. If you’d like to proceed, go ahead fill out and submit the questionnaire linked to from the information page, ignoring what’s irrelevant and adding details specific to your needs where appropriate.
