I’d love to be able to do some mountain running in the White Mountains in New Hampshire. After reading the book I’m pretty sure I’m aerobically deficient so my plan is to focus 100% on getting an aerobic base — for now I’m doing about 25 miles a week with a slow ramp up. Is this a reasonable thing to do for now, seeing as how I can’t run up even a modest hill in the aerobic zone, or should I still follow one of the more specific training plans? I think I’ve still got a ways to go, as on flat ground my pace is currently about 10min/mile.
Apologies if this is a basic question that gets asked over and over; thanks for your patience.
