I’m interested in the Eiger plan for an upcoming AK trip in May, does the time frame for the plan include like a ‘base-only buildup period’, or does it start out assuming a certain base fitness and you adjust your hours/weight per week based on your best guestimate?
Also, have you all found that its tough to still have ‘fun’ while doing one of these training plans? I generally climb/run/ski/bike 6 days a week and love getting out with my friends in the mountains, and i’m worried i’m going to have to be like ‘no I cant go on that rad tour, its my weight training day’ or whatever. Do y’all run into kind of issue often?
…and if this is the wrong place for this post let me know and I can take it down
