March 2017

Focus Points for March:

  • Complete max aerobic threshold build with a few progression runs
  • Increase weekly verticle gain to approximately 10,000 ft.

Rational for Approach:

Before I begin the real Western States verticle focused build I want to have a strong aerobic base in place. The first two weeks I focused a few runs on cutting down to mid five minute per mile pace. The second half of the month I wanted to put a bit more structured climbing runs in place. My reasoning for targeting approximately 10,000 feet verticle was because historically I have averaged quite low verticle in my running at around 5,000 feet. The increase to 10,000 feet will narrow the gap for next month where I will be targetting 15,000-20,000 verticle feet.
