Kristen and I have been committed to exercising during this trip. We spent the first couple of days at a YMCA in Granby, Colorado. This is the mountains and there was snow. As much as I would have liked to run outside, I value my ankles too much and didn't want to fall off a cliff. Instead we did 100 burpees for time and both finished under 10 minutes. My time was 9:26.
Now we're in Denver at a Hilton Garden Inn, my favorite hotel chain. Hilton Garden Inns always have a nice fitness facility and this one is rather large. Kristen recommended that I do intervals, so this morning at 5:15 AM, I headed down for some treadmill action.
This was pretty dang hard because of the altitude. And I actually didn't follow the plan as written and increased the speeds so I started faster in the later rounds. My third round speeds were 6.5, 7, 7.5, 8 and my fourth round speeds were 7, 7.5, 8, 8.5. I also used 30# and 25# for the fourth round of weights. I figured that I needed to make it more difficult if I wasn't entirely spent and I'm glad that I did. Not sure the other hotel guests enjoyed me lying in the middle of the fitness room floor and doing the post-WOD gasps for breath.
