Sounds like an awesome adventure. I have been just east of there a couple of times climbing in the Taghia gorge. Amazing zone. I would not do anything different with the training other than taking a light week the week before your climb date to make sure youre rested. Nothing you’re going to do from a training perspective is going to move the needle much in the next week so the best thing that you can do is to show up rested and healthy. Make sure not to go out too fast the first few hours and then not be able to maintain. Maintain a reasonable pace and make sure to keep eating and drinking all day to the best of your ability and you should be fine. Can’t wait to hear about the travels when you get back!
Sorry for the multiple posts, thought it was easier to separate.
Bit of a curve ball here, but I happen to be going to Morocco in two weeks and I was dying to find something fun to do, so I decided to hike Jebel Toubkal. I think it’s doable for me, but can always bail if I’m wrong. Trick here is I need to do it in a day, which is ~20 miles and ~8k feet. Terrain seems pretty straightforward, but it’s a long day for me for sure.
Any thoughts on changes to training plan or anything else? Maybe this is a dumb idea but I’m unlikely to go back to Morocco so figured I’d try.
