Just started – how much vertical?

    Hi all, just bought the uphill athlete book to aid with training for summer Spine (Flare) race in UK.
    Keeping it simple and following the Cat 1 basic plan.
    In the day to day descriptions for a typical week it talks about ascent on runs as a % of weekly vertical target but no where can I see what it recommends my weekly vertical target ought to be. I expect that the weekly target is a % of the cumulative ascent on the race of course, but no where can I see the recommended % vertical for training on a weekly basis.. unless we steal from the skimo plans?? This is a long trail race rather than skimo etc.
    Thanks folks

    Found it, via a tag in an earlier post; pgs 304-305.
