Everest Challenge Training — Vertical Ascent

Last updated 2012-11-20 - Send Feedback
Related: Everest Challenge, Hard Core, Rides, training

The first five month of training were focused on building an aerobic base and on drastically reducing body fat. This required a route that could be repeated each and every day— a flat-to-rolling course, which contributed only 1100 vertical feet per day.

As June approached and the weight goal being largely met, training increasingly began to incorporate climbing, with a focus on intensive climbing starting in late June.

Average ascent, annualized

Annualized vertical ascent (yearly cumulative rate of ascent looking back various numbers of days).

The red marks are the 365-day total, since an annualized 365 days is the 365 day average.

The orange marks are 270 days, or the past 3/4 of a year.

Illness around 3rd week in January put me behind schedule.

Cumulative ascent for 2011

Ascent relative to 1.0 million feet annual goal for 2011

Deficit (red) or surplus (black) vertical feet of climbing, relative to annual goal of climbing 1 million vertical feet.

For the first 5 months of the year, relatively little climbing was done (mostly flat and rolling ground), hence an increasing deficit until May.
