My epic vacation to Breckenridge, Colorado came to an end…..but first, let’s check out some gorgeous pics of this experience!
We were at about 10,000 feet (above sea level), and my body could definitely feel that!
Workouts were HARDER, breathing was a bit shallower, and I was a lot more tired than usual. None of this stopped me from having a blast, but altitude in workouts and for overall health really matters.
I slept like a rockstar every.single.night.
We went on hikes, walks, and did fun activities outside. Plus we swam every day (SCORE!)
We went down into a local mine….
It was actually quite fascinating, and really scary! I would never ever want to be a miner–and would never let my husband do that (even though that mine produced over $150 million in gold in the 1800’s). Those miners would have to mine 10 hours a day (in cold, dark conditions) for 6 days/week! Thousands went ‘missing’ in this mine too. Freaky!
Luckily we did not go missing ourselves…
I loved this vacation and how active and outside in the beautiful nature it was!
I remembered to slow down and really STOP to look at the gorgeous scenery. To take it all in.
Oh, and the view of sweet, new babies doesn’t hurt, either.
We’re off to take some family pictures, watch some football, and fly back home! My gym peeps miss me….I hope 😉
Have a lovely weekend!
Have YOU ever experienced altitude sickness before?? Can YOU tell a difference in workouts when YOU’re higher up??
