Adventure Training Advice

“How do you train for a several week long adventure?”

The number one misconception about training for your trip, whether it’s a weeklong hiking trip or a Paddle to Seattle, is you need to be in great shape. True, it is important to be physically conditioned prior to your departure, but don’t overextend yourself with a strenuous training regimen. You will be more likely to sustain an injury on the trip; an injury could mean the end to your trip.

For a finite physical activity—like a race—it’s important to be in shape for the event. You want to start peeking just before the race. Peeking before a multiple week pursuit—your big adventure—will only lead to the body breaking down over the weeks.

When you are looking to hike/bike/paddle for a few weeks over a specific terrain, go into the activity well cross-trained. Nothing specific. Your body will acclimate to the strain and you will finish the endeavor well-chiseled and ready for more:)
