High Altitude Adventure (Girl)

Today’s workout: Unscheduled rest day

Adventure Girl is taking on running at great heights in her latest post on Running Gone Wild. Reading about her experiences at 4,200 feet is making me wonder how I’ll do on the trails in Colorado this summer. Perhaps I’ll practice running while holding my breath for long periods of time. Just kidding – but I’m curious to find out if there are ways to practice for higher elevations.

No running for me today. The weather has laden me with a sinus pressure headache and I chose to grab some extra sleep this morning. I’m planning to do my final week’s run tomorrow (maybe one more on Friday if I feel strong) and then rest on Saturday for Sunday’s race. That’s the plan. At least the elevations at the New Hyde Park 8K don’t approach those in Bend, Oregon.
