Keep a Climbing Log (Introduction)
Want to be a better climber? Climbing ability is one
of the most important attributes of a good road or mountain bike rider. In
races, the ability to climb often distinguishes those who finish at the front
and those who drop out.
Almost any coach will suggest keeping a training log to keep track of volume—how
much riding you do, and intensity—how hard you ride.
Although relatively few people keep track of their climbing (generally because
they haven’t sufficiently considered it), logging your climbing helps focus your
training and helps improve your climbing ability.
