The local ultra scene still has a lot of that, though there certainly has been a few coaches specialising in the long stuff cropping up in recent years. Some very good ones too.

I have a mate here that keeps trying to get me into ultra trail. I was watching a few videos and came across a guy called Timothy Olsen that operates a trail running camp in Boulder.

I thought the camp looked good but my short haired mate informed that neither him, not I have enough hair to attend. :lol:

I don't think she'll do 1 legit iron distance effort.

Well, I just spent some time perusing Ashley's Insta page as preparation for next month's challenge. 

 

And you were complaining about 20 seconds of your life you won't get back Oldschool. Hah.

She's just finished a 2 week ride (about 90 mile/day) between a couple of states to raise money for something. Did you know she has 3 boys & 7 businesses?

Really?  90miles a day for two weeks is pretty good.

Solid for sure.

Would be worth doing brick sessions every day.

You'll love this then:

How to take 6 minutes to say "do back-to-back long runs".

 

 

Sorry.  I tried. But I couldn't do it. I only lasted a minute in. It was either turn it off or poke myself in the eye to distract myself from the brain pain.

The real question is though, where is she going to find room for 50 IM tattoos?

Everyone should ask her all the question here on her Instagram page. Hammer it!

Yeah ExH and Tyno you could let her know that there are some skeptical people who doubt she'll do the full distance each day and whilst you're big fans it would be great if she wore a Garmin and posted the data just to keep the haters quiet.

Garmin files mean squat. 

 

Is it really her wearing it, or has she passed it to a mate?

Is she in the RV with the garmin on the dash?

Is she on the bike instead of running?

 

I noticed in the recent ride, she was doing gym sessions each morning. I wonder if she'll try to do that this time as well? If so, it'll make this that much harder. If not, she'll lose a lot of the body that she's built over these years.

I wouldn't pay money to be coached by two mediocre athletes with no coaching experience. Very good at the tippy toe pose however.

I agree that they will attract a very limited clientele. Young, inexperienced females. 

Based on her IG posing, I'd say that's pretty much the opposite of the market she's going for.

Definitely agree she is trying to attract members of the opposite gender to her insta, but I doubt many of these will see her as a coach.

But their girlfriends might, unless they find out how much time their boyfriends spend viewing her insta account?

So apparently some insta-famous woman is going to do 50 Ironmans in 50 days in 50 different places. 

That's what I thought the thread was about anyway!? I think her name is Ashley, who is this Corky??

Maybe we should pause this thread for a few weeks then restart it again when our friend Ashley starts her journey.

Her fitness facility is located in Virginia Beach. The training on the Strava account is in Virginia Beach. 

The photo on the Strava account looks like her.

I think all you haters missed the critical point in the article:

The fitness competitor, who has her own training program, 

Success guaranteed when you have your own training program.

The only thing I'll say, is she's not riding a Giant so that must give her some level of cred in some people minds!

Young Ashley has put a proposed schedule up.

I know she said she plans to sleep in the RV, but I can see a couple of 5+ hour transfers.

It has been noted on ST, she proposes going to a few hot as balls places in hot as balls time of year.

She's also looking for an RV driver, preferably with RV.

Just a few weeks out. Sounds like this has been planned really well.

One of you should go take the opportunity to have a USA road trip, hire an RV and report back on how she goes :) Alas I can't make it myself.

I think this is going to be really hard for her.  She won't have the time to post poses on Instagram.

Surely if she was that much of a big deal instagram influencer a few well placed  motor home #’s should get the sponsors knocking the door down.

There'd be some pretty good stuff available to help them with a quick recovery, I'm sure.

Dumb question but has she ever done a Real Ironman?

And how is she getting away with using the Ironman trademark name in all this advertising?

The WTC lawyers are a bit slack it seems.

It's all promoted as going to a charity, so it would be real bad press to set the attack dogs on to her.

Okay not being picky but is she doing 50 Ironmans in 50 days?

or 50 Ironmans in 50 days in a row?

because this will put her behind right from day 1. Starting in the evening.

I suppose if she starts in the evening, she'll do most of it the next day, so will count that as the first day, which then gives her time to get to the next destination.
