24 Week Plan Modification

    I’m at about the middle of the 24 week training plan (6 weeks into base period), and thinking I should make some modifications, so I’m looking for some guidance. First off, I’m 60yo and in pretty good shape (except a fake hip and numerous disk issues). After bonking above high camp on Island Peak last season, I am training for Lobuche in April. My belief is that I trained wrong the first time (not enough volume of low level cardio) and this time will be different 🙂

    Lobuche is not really a technical peak. At most I’ll spend some time using an ascender. I’ve already modified the Base exercises somewhat. My breaks inbetween sets are a little longer, and for some exercises (like pull ups), I’ve reverted to doing a few more reps rather than fewer very slow reps. I know strength reserve is important, but I am trying hard.

    I’m to start hill sprints this week. I am a poor runner, so a 2 km warm-up run is pretty difficult. How can I pare it down a little so I survive the workout and still get real benefit?

    Sorry to be slow getting to this. It got into our spam folder.

    Do not bother with Hill Sprints at all. If you do not run much this can be a good way to get injured. Instead ad more sets to the box steps in the strength workout and use the hill sprint day for more Z1-2 training via hiking.

    Good luck.
