Preparing for a mountain race when you live in the priaries

Postby gdultra run » Mon Apr 15, 2019 9:39 am

Winter is the busy season for me since I have two kids that Alpine ski race. Although I love it and it allows me to get away from the city and spend my free time in the Canadian Rockies, I have very little time to train for long races that occur early in the season. This week I start to focusmy training for the Eiger 101 this July. I think I have built a reasonable base so I am ready to start hill training and adding distance to my long runs. For the next few weeks I will spend it at home in a prairie city with limited options for hill serious hill training. So before I head to the mountains after the snow starts to melt at higher elevations I will try and prep my legs. What do you do to prep for mountain races if you do not have access to a mountain trail?

Here is what I am doing
Hill repeats at 25 m elevation gain
Stairs
lunges
