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.
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!
