Scott & Don

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
