I am currently on week 3 of the 8 week ice program and I will be getting the 24 week program to prepare for a West Buttress trip. I spent a couple of weeks on Denali this year but had to turn around due to a badly shredded tent. Only had about 5 months of training for the climb due to a few back to back knee surgeries that sidelined me for most of 2016.
Although I felt good for the majority of the climb I really want to go the extra mile with training and I am looking for something well structured, like your 24 week program.
How can I safely combine both programs?
I dont want to diminish my ice program since this will be my first year leading ice and I want to be as solid as possible, but I also do now want to neglect my Denali training.
Currently I am only doing what the 8 week program dictates and nothing more, can I start working on my base for Denali?. How would you train for both trips simultaneously?
