Training for the Uphill Athlete: A Manual for Mountain Runners and Ski Mountaineers

Unabridged Audiobook

Date: May 2020

Duration: 9 hours 42 minutes

Summary:

Dovetailing on the success of Training for the New Alpinism and Patagonia's own emphasis on all mountain use, Training for the Uphill Athlete translates theory into methodology to allow you to write your own training plans and coach yourself to endurance goals.

Steve House, one of the best mountaineers, and his coach Scott Johnston, an Olympic-level cross country ski coach, along with Kilian Jornet, hands-down best endurance athlete at this time, present training principles for the multisport mountain athlete who regularly participates in a mix of distance running, ski mountaineering, and other endurance sports that require optimum fitness and customized strength.

This is an authoritative but accessible training manual for athletes and coaches who feel most alive in the mountains or pushing the uphill ascent. Distance running, ski mountaineering, skimo, and skyrunning are becoming increasingly popular all over the world, and are often undertaken by the same person during a single year. This book collects the scientifically backed and athlete-tested wisdom and experience of three of the best uphill athletes and coaches and extrapolates both to educate outdoor athletes of all stripes to perform their best.

    Wow...... very very complicated listen.... this book is only for a professional runner that only goal in life is to be the best like Killian.... it talks about a 6 or 7 day training regime, zones, acronyms..... to be fair I never properly read up on what the book was about, I wanted to improve my running uphill and was looking for tips on how to do this through diet, other exercises that could help do this, equipment. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case . I struggled to keep awake with the narrators monotone American voice which was very annoying to the point of falling asleep. A hard listen but would interest the over keen or professional and not the leisure runner that enjoys fell running twice maybe three times a week.
