I average about an hour a day of good general exercise (wts, cardio, yoga), including weekends. I also have a regular job and a commute (11 hrs tot), not to mention family. I get to the gym by 5 AM and try to walk (fast) at lunch hour when I can but I hit the wall after work. I'm not in bad shape but I am also not in great shape.
I need to train for altitude, stamina/endurance, and technique and there do not seem to be enough hours in the day or enough gas in the tank to get it all in. How do you train for the long days at altitude, technical climbs, heavy loads, etc., and still hold down a regular job. Is there a tried and true routine/schedule/plan you know of? Do you have any particular tips for keeping your energy going after a workday? What works?
