EP 580: Altitude Training – Best Practices for Adaptation

Do you have an adventure or race at high altitude this summer?  You will want to listen to Coach Ian Sharman teach us about the ins and outs of how to adapt most effectively.

Ian has experience at altitude.  He is a four-time winner of the high-altitude Leadville 100 (lowest point is over 9000′ and climbing up to 12,532′).

We talk about

when do you need to consider acclimatization
where to train
how to train
how soon should you be at the event
what if you don’t have time to spend at altitude

Check out his article “High Altitude Training” in Ultra Running Magazine
