PS. It's not that I'm not in shape. As my wife always says "round's a shape".

Due to altitude and pressure's effect on the ability to get oxygen into bloodstream, the aerobic threshold drops to a lower level, thus leading anaerobic burn at a lower pace?
That's only a first order approximation.

Ze's reference wrote: Well you should know that altitude has lower pressure and it's harder to get oxygen into the bloodstream and to the muscles. This means that if you are moving at a certain speed / workload, you are getting less of your energy from aerobic glycolysis, and more from anaerobic glycolysis!
