Yes, definitely use the BC trek as the taper period. If you are fit enough to climb Everest the BC trek should (better) be a mellow walk in the park for you. Just don’t push hard during this time as you will also be at altitude.
I’m finishing my 24 week mountaineering expedition plan, as a preparation to climb Everest this Spring.
Since I’d like to stretch the plan 1 week or 2, I wonder if you’d recommend using the trekking to EBC as the taper period, instead of using the last week of the plan doing short 30min runs.
What are your thoughts?
