    10,000ft a week

    Many people have told me this and Mike Sadula says, "Some say that you need to climb 10,000 ft a week." Prior to a BG attempt
    But, for how many weeks before, and what if its not possible every single week?

    Glad you said that, 3 flights of stairs in this house, and 2 flights on the decking, and up and down ladders at work, probably doing more climbing than i realise

    I did this for my Paddy, still average about that. I just made sure I had a good 12 months of at least averaging 3000m a week, but also tried never to do less than 2000m, living in Snowdonia this wasn't hard to achieve at all.

    That's way more than i did before the bgr. I averaged 12,000 over 6 months, building up to it over a couple of months.

    I used my Garmin downloaded through Sports tracks, sometimes Anquet, sometimes maps, sometimes a standard suunto altimeter watch.
