High Altitude Vacationing (Online) W24


with Carole Freeman, Augusta Adult and Community Education

Calendar Jan 8, 2024

Don’t spoil your trip to a higher altitude - condition your body first. People often feel shortness of breath, lightheaded, and fatigued at higher altitudes because their bodies work harder while taking in less oxygen. Anxiety increases, and your enjoyment decreases. You’ll have more energy, feel better, and enjoy your trip when you condition your body first to increase oxygenation and endurance. Do the same preparation that elite athletes do with this 4-week, self-paced course at home, even if you live at sea level.

Your class link and code will be sent with your registration receipt.

Events include: food vendors, parades, dancers, drummers, martial arts demonstrations, cultural arts and crafts. We’ll cheer on our favorite Dragon Boat racers. When we’ve had our fill of excitement, we’ll meander over to Chinatown and choose one of Chris’ favorite dimsum restaurants.
After making our way back to North Station, we’ll hop on the Downeaster’s 4:15 train and relax on our way back to Portland.
Walking shoes are highly recommended.
Plan for “iffy” weather.
