    Yes, I am glad to be looking ahead a few years in order to enjoy the mountains as injury free as possible and possibly get some good results in races.

    The move up in hours so far hasn’t been difficult. I got some of my best results after adding intensity and increasing to two hard workouts during the week. I was not yet versed in the ten percent spread between AeT and AnT but I must have been pretty close because my performance jumped considerably. I am now carefully building and trying to calculate my AeT and AnT during rest weeks.

    I will take the 500 hours of running training into account and perhaps invest in a road bike soon. Thanks for your advice, I really appreciate it.

    Thanks for the reply, your reasoning makes a lot of sense. I will change the ATP to reflect my time spent training in different modes.

    My concern was based on a note in Uphill athlete about adding only 10 percent of training hours per year. I moved from 300 hours in 2017 up to probably about 450 hours this year. I don’t want to overdo it and sabotage longevity so I was a bit conservative in my training time estimates.

    The amount of different factors you have to take into account in training is dizzying. I am starting to get the hang of the dance though. As for planning in shorter chunks, I usually have a somewhat detailed 3 month plan with a broad plan up to a year including base phases, specificity, peaking for races etc.

    I will spend more time going through Training for the Uphill Athlete and continue to hone the process.
