Definitely maxed the HR today.  Most likely near the end of the squat/press set, I was really striving to perform more than 9 sets.  On a plus side, my heart rate recovery continues to improve, dropping under 90 bpm within 3-4 minutes of any exercises series.

This comes from Training for the New Alpinism.

Felt smooth.  I didn't push hard, just a smooth steady stepping pace.  Getting under 20 minutes would require a running pace.  I look to add hiking boots and a light pack (~10#) next week.

I have had a few people ask about my current training, notably that it has changed from max strength based to more endurance, strength-endurance focused.  These are correct observations and that is because my goals for 2015 are different and require me to be more enduring.

2015 Goals are as follows:
 - January 17 - climb Mt. Washington, NH
 - May 30 - Mohican 100 mile mountain bike race, single-speed division
 - Late July/early August - climb Long's Peak, CO via Stettner's Ledge's route, 5.8 Grade III

Was hard to motivate to start.  Feeling tired.  Ready for a relaxing weekend and rest.  Overall, still very happy with my performance under fatigue this week.  Progress still be made in overall volume and heart rate continues to operate at a lower level.

Perceived exertion is definitely a lot lower.  Still would like my heart rate to be lower on the run.  All in time I assume.
