Edit: Just got an email, must have been a result of that last nights workout, my New Threshold Heart Rate Value has been updated to 178. This should help with my running I hope!
I am in about week 19 of the 24 week expedition mountaineering plan.
I am leaving for Ecuador to climb a few peaks including another attemt @ Chimoborazo in about 4 weeks.
The Z3 weighted climbs were introduced 2 weeks ago and last evening was my third go at this workout. I have been working out at a set of concrete bleachers next to a river. Its about 40 – 7″ steps and there are 14″ high steps as bleachers seats that I also rotate in to the climbing. I just repeat over and over, up and down for the 90 mins.
This workout was done with an 83 lb. pack, and 5lb ankle weights. 225lbs. bodyweight.
I’m not breathing extemely hard, its mostly the average and overall HR that I am concerned with I guess. Also a little confused/concerned by my heart rate as it seems unusually high for my age (42 yrs. old – max HR 178?). Just want to make sure I am not doing anything to hinder my training progress with the trip only weeks away.
I mean, is it possible that I need to add more weight to slow the HR down?
I do have a somewhat long history with Crossfit, and maybe some real ADS I imagine.
I still am not able to run/jog @ an aerobic HR, I have to run for approx. 30 sec, 35 seconds fast walk to stay in the zone. This has been slowly improving. My theshold is currently set @ 170.
Any advise or thoughts you can offer would be great.
