Kiichi's Iron Kiba Training B

Kiichi's prep for Iron Kiba also included endurance training-- super endurance training. This is absolutely ridiculous, but there are some people who run ULTRA-MARATHONS!  In short, an ultra-marathon is anything over a marathon, but generally go in increments like 30, 50 and 100 miles. You'll run slower during these types of events, but for longer periods of time. Kiichi went on a run that lasted more than 24 hours in order to both push his physical and mental endurance to their limits and reach a super runner's high. So, this training is not to be entered without a fair amount of prep work. Ultra-marathoning, like any elite sport has the potential to be very dangerous, so keep that in mind as you progress.


Kiichi's Iron Kiba Training B


The Goal:

  • Run continuously (if possible) for 24 hours. 
The Progression:
  • Stage 1: Alternate running and walking 30 minutes each for as many rounds as possible.
  • Stage 2: Alternate running 1 hour and walking 30 minutes each for as many rounds as possible.
  • Stage 3: Alternate running 1 and a half hours and walking 30 minutes each for as many rounds as possible.
  • Stage 4: Alternate running 2 hours and walking 30 minutes each for as many rounds as possible.
  • Stage 5: Alternate running for as long as possible and walking 30 minutes for as many rounds as possible.

Notes:
  • There are no predefined terms for you to get to each level, however, in general you should have several rounds under your belt of each level before progressing to the next stage. 
  • Your feet will take the brunt of this training. If possible run on grass or dirt for as much as possible to spare yourself the beating. The first stage will really give you the ability to rest in between the pounding of your feet against the ground and you'll be able to build it gradually. 
  • You will need to eat. Sports drinks, carb gels, and protein-type bars are going to be essential to keep you going in the later rounds. 
  • This training is not to be done all the time and is designed to be just another workout thrown into the mix of Real Anime Training workouts. 

That's all for today. Until next time, good luck and train hard!
