I am recovering well…
Then feel free to add additional (or extend existing) Z1/2 sessions.
I understand endurance is an adaptation that takes a long time, but it seems like more weekly aerobic volume can get me there faster.
I am running the 24-Week Expedition plan for Rainier/Baker in August and extending to Aconcagua in Dec 2020. I am in the beginning month.
My question is, what would the best way to add in extra aerobic work to the program? Right now I do 90 minutes fasted 5x/week, with the longer day on the 6th, and 1 rest day. The 2x strength days I go to the gym again in the afternoon. I am recovering well, but I’d like to go from the current 10hrs/weekly closer to 12hrs/weekly (not including Strength) and seems like what is included in the plan is the bare minimum. I am already doing quite a bit more than the program calls for, though I do NOT plan on tacking additional strength or ME workouts once I get through the plan, just aerobic or Z1/Z2 workouts.I saw great results last year just doing strictly the 12-Week Time Crunch, but want to expedite fixing ADS. I understand endurance is an adaptation that takes a long time, but it seems like more weekly aerobic volume can get me there faster.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
