    Well if that’s the case then I should be about ready to climb Everest! Maybe I should start hunting elk in an earlier season, closer to our summers.

    Nice to see others following Uphill Athlete on here. Anybody trying to improve their fitness should follow them and probably get either or both books they have published.

    I had their first book and kind of loosely followed some of their methodology in the past. Last year I got serious about it when I started training for a couple of ultras and I went from being able to hunt hard for one day in the mountains and needing a rest day to being able to string together multiple hard days. (Although I was using a lot of Tylenol because my IT bands were not healed from my 50 miler)

    I co-coach an athlete with them. I have really learned a lot about the endurance side of the process through both of their books
