Wah, the 2nd hypoxic training session was not quite so successful as the 1st. I lasted all of 6 minutes walking! I felt Ok, but a bit drunk and I seemed to forget how to walk so started to stumble at which point they stopped the test. My stats had dropped low very quickly too
We had a chat, I recovered, and we decided to try the bike on the basis that I would not fall just slump forward if anything went awry
Was Ok on the bike and cycled for 25 minutes until the bag of 'air' ran out. Stats dropped very quickly again and lower than when he stopped the treadmill, but they settled and I felt OK. managed to get through 700+ litres of air cycling.
All very strange. I am really glad that I am doing this and will be a bit prepared for how i will feel and be able to set my expectations in terms of effort.
