Running is probably my major interest and when I come back from injury I want to take my running a lot more seriously (and carefully). I also enjoy rock climbing, hillwalking, winter climbing and mountaineering in general. I'm off to the Himalayas in October to climb Baruntse and Mera Peak, which means 35 days away from proper training. But was wondering if anybody else on here enjoys mountaineering, and whether you manage to combine it with your running training? Do you find they complement each other? I've always struggled to be happy with combining the two, as a long day hillwalking doesn't really count as a quality session and means I need a day of rest after and rock climbing requires extra muscle mass for upper body strength to be good at it (which I want to be).
It's almost a debate about which sport I want to be best at and take priority over the others, but I want to be able to do them all to an extent.
