For about the last month or so I've been going out every 2 to 3 days. I'm building up slowly but here has been my plan...
Obviously core training and the like.
Been hiking 3-5 miles with a pack. Started at 1 mile and 20lbs now Im at 3 to 5 with 35lbs. I'd like to get to a soldid 5-7 with 50 or 60.
Changed my diet quite a bit too. Eat a decent breakfast, such as yogurt and fruit or eggs and toast (enough to fill up). A large lunch, high protien low fat. Then a smaller dinner consisting of about 65-70% vegetables. My rationale behind this is that if I eat a large lunch it gives me energy/ carbs for a hike and most will be burnt or absorbed when really needed vs a large dinner that sits all night and goes right where you don't want it.
What do some of you guides think about this if one of your clients were willing (lol) to train this hard?
Also anyone in the interior, I wouldn't mind some company once in a while either if you are starting your training too!
Also for those of you just wanting to burn some of that winter off check this out, great article and interesting science!
