Congratulations on the climb and on making the most of your training to prepare for it. You are exactly who we wrote this book for. We’ve been rewarded for our efforts to get that book out by this same type of feedback and it is what drove us to write Training for the Uphill Athlete. We want to help people succeed with their mountain dreams.
What you learned about training and its effects on you will be of so much value when you want to repeat this cycle again. I’d recommend at least a short transition period of 3-4 weeks before diving back into the base period.
