A different workout

This past weekend I went to Triglav mountain. It is quite a hike from the parking lot where we started to the rest house just below the summit. I was told that the distance was around 7 km and the rise in elevation was around 1700 meters. I can tell you that my legs got a real testing and when I ran on Monday I knew I had really worked them. I know my legs will be much stronger after this and of course my breathing will be better too. I guess you could say this was my first experience with altitude training, well sort of. I am sure I will feel the benefit later in the year.
