I personally would, it’s still training stress.
I hike with a group once a week
On the uphill portion I don’t go with the group so I can maintain my AeT and use it as a training session. The uphill will range from 2 to 4 hours with a gain of 2000-4000’
Here’s the question: on the downhill portion I recreate and go with the group. It’s always at or below my recovery heart rate
Should I be counting these downhill hours towards training? I currently do not and I have noticed no adverse effects on training days from these non counted hours.
