I’ve been doing mountaineering, alpinism and skimo quite a while. A couple of weeks ago I discovered the Training for the new Alpinism book. I figured out that I have classic aerobic base deficiency. I’m the classic example: in the earlier days, I was doing track and field (high jump and long jump) and my training was exclusively anaerobic. When I transferred to mountaineering, alpinism and skimo, my heart rate remained always quite high and I need to refuel a lot during ascents. Since I wanted to change something, I started to do high volumes below AeT three weeks ago. Since I suffer from ADS, I’m really, really slow. My standard home-based training consists of long runs in flat area with hilly sections (max height of the hills is 50m / 150ft). Now my question about that hilly sections (with the disciplines mountaineering, alpinism and skimo in mind):
Should I rather run very slowly on a moderate inclination OR should I walk on steep inclination very, very slowly (so slow that my GPS thinks I’m standing still)?
Thank you very much!
