Hey folks, I have some pretty serious mountain hunting I plan on doing this year (sheep and caribou up here and a pack in elk hunt near Minam/Wallowa Oregon). I am a fairly in shape fella' but I wondered if any of you would be willing to take a look at my training plan thus far and guide me a bit based on your training and mountain hunting.
Here is what I do so far:
Mondays: 7 mile interval run
Tuesdays: 7.5 mile interval run and 1 hr. swim at night
Wednesday: 8 mile interval run in the AM and chest/tri's at night (not for mass, high reps in the 14-20 rep range at 65-80% max)
Thursday: 8.5 mile at 80% max pace
Friday: 5 mile run at 90-100% pace in the AM and back/bi's at night (same workout pattern % as Wed)
Saturday: Cross country/mountain hike with pack (82lbs) for 12-15 miles.
I hope this works out for August/September. Thanks for any input!!!
