brick

The Sheraton Denver West has a lap pool on the second floor!   This is the first time I’ve ever encountered a lap pool in a hotel.  They also have a complete fitness center, which, I’m guessing is open by membership to non-hotel guests.

I decided to get up early and take advantage of the facilities.  Not taking the altitude into account, I decided on a run-swim brick workout.  I downed a barley green packet with a few chugs of water as pre-workout energy .  When packing yesterday, I’d made sure I had a full 10 day supply of my favorite nutritional extra and left all the rest of my vitamins at home.  Not a practice I recommend or have ever before followed myself, but I’m taking such a cocktail right now that I was lazy and skipped it entirely.

The workout:

20 minutes easy jog on treadmill

10 minutes easy swim (swimming the first day at altitude is difficult!)

10 minutes stretching and core exercises

I topped it all off with the “high fiber” breakfast from the hotel restaurant.  Big mistake, as it was also very high sugar and left me feeling ill all day!
