    Altitude

    I didn't really know where to post this, so I posted it here because I am over 35 🙄

    I am exercising for the first time at altitude, but it's a small altitude: 1200mt. more or less.
    Yet I can feel a big difference. I feel overall weaker, and my heart races really easily.

    Is that normal?

    Altitude response varies greatly between people and largely genetic, not so much fitness based. As a rough rule of thumb, from sea level to 2,500m shouldn't give problems for 95% of people.

    If aclimatised to sea level and you go to 2,500m you will notice a difference. Also if you need to boil water to make it safe you need a rolling boil for 3 minutes compared to 1 minute rolling boil at sea level, so there is a significant difference by about 2,500 onwards.

    But at only 1,200 metres many people won't notice a difference unless you are trying to break a personal best in a run or something. If you do notice? Go with it, you're getting better training

    Edit: you should completely adjust/aclimatise to 1,200m fairly quickly. You'll be used to it before you know it

    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    Yes but your body will eventually adjust if your there for a period of time.
