“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”
When you complete one of NZs Great Walks you and your tramping mates will have accomplished something very special.
Designed for Beginner/Intermediate trampers who are looking to improve their fitness prior to tramping one of New Zealand's Great Walks.
Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport and the outdoors.
Starting 12 weeks before you are booked in for your tramp, this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week typically contains 3-4 walks, some with your pack and others are recommended as overnight tramps to a hut and back the next day. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).
Prior to using this plan, you should be able to complete a steady walk for 40 minutes.
Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.
Training for another race distance? I also have training plans for Triathlons and Running events (from 5k to marathon), too.
