So I've a BG planned for late July. Problem is I have a pretty physical job and am finding training on top of it pretty damn hard. I'm a postie. So my typical day is generally spent pushing a fully loaded trolley around the streets for anything upto 5 hours or carry bags of mail on my back for a similar amount of time. My typical route is roughly 10 miles. It's extremely knackering day after day. So really what I'm getting at is my daily work slog any kind of counter to training for a BG? I'm kind of inclined to believe that it is? I've tried for this fabled 10000ft of ascent in a week and have nearly managed it twice but it has left me utterly knackered! It's not a realistic training goal on top of my work mileage. When I do train, 2 or 3 times a week I make sure it counts-hill reps/speed/intervals etc. My weekly training mileage is a maximum of 25 miles on top of work mileage. So we're talking about 75-80 miles a week (but 50 or so us spent at work) I mix the training up, week of ascent, a week of speed/interval sessions and a week with a long slow plod. If on the fells I'll generally try for 4500ft of ascent. Any advice greatly appreciated!
