The Training For Trekking Podcast

Feb 10, 2020

In this episode, I discuss my system of training hikers for a challenge hike (such as 50km in 24 hours).

There are so many amazing hiking challenges out there. Whether it is 50km in 24 hours, 100km in 48 hours or anything in between. They are a great goal to aim for, can be an amazing social event and, of course, raise money for so many amazing charities.

But I have one major issue with them...

So many of these (which I have seen at least) come with absolutely ridiculous recommended training plans.

Which just throw together outrageous amounts of training kilometers, with no thought to injury risk or time-efficient training.

So today, I discuss my simple system to prepare for a challenge hike (which you doesn't involve dedicating your entire life to walking...)

You will learn:

  • How to plan your hiking training (including exactly how many kilometers you need to aim for before your event)
  • One incredibly important tip on how to prevent aches, pains or unnecessary fatigue while training for these hikes
  • How most preparation programs get strength training wrong
  • A few great options for hiking specific conditioning to do during the week (which will take 60 minutes or less)
  • What a 'perfect' week of training would look like
