Steve thought it would be interesting for me to write up a case study of how I prepared for Mt. Washington and some of the science and ideas behind my training. I must warn you that my training would probably never be recommended by any coach for anyone else as it is one done of out necessity. However, as such, it offers a glimpse at a completely stripped, brutally effective regimen.
I started graduate school in physics at MIT last fall. To say this year it has been difficult to train is an understatement.
