Hypoxic Wake-Up

29.Oct.2009 by Ollie Burruss

This morning we did max bounding intervals up the service road at the Diamond Peak alpine area. As the title indicates, the workout was a rude awakening for me. I blew the pacing on the first few and quickly felt the “hand around my windpipe” feeling I’ve come to associate with pushing too hard at altitude.

After a bit of a tongue lashing from Pepa about pacing, I salvaged the remaining intervals and finished feeling strong.

Today’s lesson: don’t play your cards too early at 6,000 feet. The mistake will come back to haunt you.
