I’m looking forward to getting to know you and the others in the group when we kick things off in a month. My “A” goal is to climb Mt Kilimanjaro in January with several “B” goals sprinkled in.
I’ve previously used the 24 week expedition plan and have done a fair amount of reading in the forum of last discussion topics for the training group.
I would suggest a plan like the following as you get ready for what the coaches load in Training Peaks.
Basic rules one rest day per week, strength/core 2x per week, all other workouts to be easy cardio. For cardio days monitor your HR and keep it at or below AeT. Strength/core days the HR doesn’t matter.
Example week as follows:
Tuesday: Chamonix Mountain Fit
Wednesday: 45 min run/jog/walk at AeT hr or below.
Thursday rest of you feel fatigued, or easy 30 min recovery jog (10% less on HR vs other days – I.e. Zone 1).
Friday: Chamonix Mountain Fit
Saturday: 1 hr run/walk/jog
Sunday: 1:15 hike (ZERO pack weight), or run/walk/jog
Move days around as schedule permits. Value consistency (short time over many days) over quantity (long days on weekends only, or the like).
If you haven’t already seen CMF you can find it under the membership link on Uphill Athlete.
Beat of luck.
