This is a log book of my main training phase (duration: ~ 4 months), where you can see what exercises I did and why I did them.

Rough timeplan of the project
2017/2018 (first year)

Mid November: two weeks of climbing as an intro to my training phase, leading to the start of phase I end of November.

End of December: end of phase I with a two week climbing trip to Spain (goal was to check out routes, decide on which one to try, and work as much as possible on it).

Beginning of January (right after my trip): start of phase II; change to phase III with a smooth transition beginning of Febuary.

End of Febuary: reduce training quantity and focus on quality only, to be recovered enough for the second Spain trip March 1 – 15, where I will try to send. If I don’t, I will come back in April, and eventually extend the project to next year.

2018/2019 (second year)

Beginning of December: three weeks of climbing as an intro to the main training period; unlike last year, I skipped phase I (see blog) and started phase II (max power) end of December.

End of January: end of phase II and start of phase III (endurance).

End of February: end of phase III; two week period of reducing training quantity and focussing on quality to get rested well enough.

Beginning of March: Two week trip to Spain to try ‘Fight or Flight’. After that, around two weeks at home recovering/training for another two week trip beginning/mid April. In case of no succes: postpone the project to next season 😉
