Norway's fast approaching, something like two weeks as my Girlfriend keeps pointing out! I'm in ok physical shape, not where iv been and certainly not where I would of liked to have been but hey ho! I have dusted off some old training books and invested in Steve House/ Scott Johnstons new book "Training for the new alpinism" . I got it with a nice bit of discount rom the great guys and girls at Alpkit (now sold out I believe), its a really impressive book, super high quality with great diagrams and photos. One of the greatest features are the interspersed essays from the likes of Steve himself and Ueli, it gives a more real feeling, backs up theory with experience and makes it a more realistic bedtime read!
I'm currently doing three gym sessions a week focusing on strength and flexibility, cardio is swimming, work, cycling, whatever I can get my hands on at the moment. I'm going to give this text a good go and come up with some targets and training plans, I will post plans and ideas as I go along with a running review of the text. If you've been thinking about it, id say get it!
