As I mentioned before, I am moving to Denver; we leave in just TWO days!! :)
While I am SUPER excited about the move, I am also nervous about the differences in running in that higher altitude. When visiting family up there, I struggle with my breath b/c of the altitude, and it's made worse by my asthma, too. So I'm not sure about how to approach starting up my running again.
I know to start slowly and build up...I am an interval runner and probably always will be. I have also heard that to acclimate to altitude you need to drink approximately double the normal recommended water intake.
Does anyone have any other ideas for running in a higher altitude? Tucson, where I currently live, is about 2402 ft, Denver is about 5183, so that's an altitude increase for me of about 2781 feet. Yikes! :)
Any tips/hints would be MOST appreciated!
