Did a more aggresive pace today. Still no running in the beginning like I use to..managed a 43:xx. Hopefully with a short run in the beginning, I will manage a better time.

I used to run the first lil bit too
But I started to just fast walk
And last year I got my PB of 40.0x by walking the first bit, and pushing It during the last 1/4.
If I run the first bit, I feel like I don't have enough juice left in me to push hard during the last 1/4

Usually, my mind gives out near the end and i'm unable to squeeze out that last bit of energy. I always end my hike still having some residual energy so I'm thinking if I run the first bit where my mind isn't beat yet, it'll lead to a faster time lol

Nothing crazy compared to the nut jobs in this thread, but, 2 weeks ago starting time of 1:24. 5 hikes and 2 weeks later, hit 1:12 this morning. Original goal was to get under 70 minutes..but now Can't wait till I get under 60 minutes.

47:38 yesterday
Took a few small breaks at the 1/2 and 3/4 mark
And finished w/ gas to spare
Pretty confident I can get it under 45
But under 40 will still need somework.
Going to come back down to Van for 1 or 2 more grind(s) on the 13th of June before seek the peak on the 15th.

^such a beast man! Good job

What do you guys do to shave your time? Do you just keep going?

I got 1:32 last week and was able to get 1:15 this week. These are the first two times I've gone lol. I want to hit around 1 hour. Is there anything I should add to my gym routine? I was thinking of doing a lot more stair master for my cardio instead of running.

No man, the others on this thread are beast. I just wanna push to get fit. Lol

For me, no stopping. Slower pace if I'm tired but no stopping. I found that getting on my toes too do the shallower steps saves my quads so I can go hard for the latter bit.
45 still seems so far away.. lol

As an avid ex-GGer my best advice to people who want to get faster is repetition and biking.

I went up last week, but I don't think I'll be buying a pass this year. Pulled a 43:21 (pb is just under 39:00) and that makes me happy considering I haven't done the grind in over a year now. I just stick to recreational biking nowadays and I commute on a bike as often as possible. I'll go again at the end of the season to see if my times improved.

Dton, you are a MONSTER. That is INSANE.


52-55 minutes.
Fairly certain when my slight injury heals, I can do it in under 50.
I do squats but that's about it. Still with love handles and at 170-173lbs. 90% of it is mental imo, I breathe so hard, people look at me like I'm going to croak - it's about pacing yourself and driving through with your feet, use hips, and chest up.

Haha, sub 35 is actually what I think is really quick. But LOL I breathe hard as well so you're not alone. TBH I only started actually working out my legs over the last year. I've been doing the GG for over 5 years now and I always had skinny ass legs (people used to call me out on that), but I wouldn't care when I'm flying by most guys on the grind. Now I do squats regularly, but I wouldn't say that I find that it made the GG any easier, just my $0.02.

I say this every year to people who want to get better, cycling does wonders. Fastest guys up the GG are always the pro/semi-pro cyclists, and it's not a coincidence.

Thanks for the tips guys! Will be cycling for my cardio this week and will see if that helps. I'm also going to not stop when I take breaks which is what I've been doing. I would stop and catch a breather instead of continuing up.

Hopefully this Saturday I can hit around 1:00 - 1:10 don't think I would be able to shave off another 15 minutes :P hoping for 5 or 10

It'll take more than a week before you start seeing benefits, but good luck! Keep it up and you'll be shedding time pronto.

Subordinate, at least you only weight 170. Try weighing 190 lbs which is where I am at..

Anyhow, went up the grind early in the morning on Sunday with the woman. Didn't so well this time around. 44 mins. I would like to say I was pacing my gf, but i think she was pacing me more than anything lol.

Probably time to lose weight lol
