First Couple of Days at Altitude

We're settled in now nicely here in Flagstaff. Everyone (except for Joel) is in the Hampton Inn & Suites. Joel is across the street at another hotel, as pets aren't allowed at the Hampton. I'm rooming with Colin, and we get along great. The rooms here are very spacious, and they have the most comfortable beds and pillows ever!! We get free continental breakfast downstairs every morning, along with copies of USA Today. I'll try to get some photos up in the next few days.

Monday we headed over to the pool in the morning for a swim. We are swimming a bit later this week than we'd normally swim (9:30 rather than 7:30) as the pool is booked solid at 7:30 this week. We ended up swimming 4000m, with a warm-up of 400 swim, 200 kick, 2x100 IM. The main set was an aerobic set consisting of 10 x 300 (swim, pull, mix)

After some running around getting things for our room and some groceries, we had a 90' easy ride to flush the legs out, and get used to the altitude.

Today's workout we were back in the pool this morning with another main aerobic set of 30 x 100 on 1:30 just rolling through them all. Colin and I headed out for a 40' run once we got back to the hotel, and we finished the day off with 2 hrs on the trainer watching some old episodes of American Gladiators.
