Recovery when Sleeping at Altitude

Improved oxygen carrying ability means nothing to an athlete if they are not able to recover each night from their daily training sessions, so naturally there has always been concern about whether sleep quality would be compromised at altitude. Fortunately experience, now finally backed up by research, has shown this concern to be unfounded. Indeed the most common early feedback from athletes (particularly masters) is about how much better they are sleeping at altitude, and how their recovery has improved.
