Spent the weekend in Denver attending a board review course for nuclear cardiology. On Friday I swam with the Masters team at the Greenwood Athletic Club in their outdoor 25 meter pool. They are coached by Michael Mann, one of the 2009 World Masters Swimmers of the Year, and are a very friendly group. I did notice the altitude but was able to finish the workout without bonking. My wife joined me on Saturday, and we had a couple of great meals on Larimer Street in the historic district, eating dinner at Bistro Vendome bistrovendome.com and Sunday brunch at Rioja riojadenver.com.
Lifted weights last night. Swam this morning at Nitro with David, Tom, Jean, and Matt. Stephen coached.
