Bikram, 90 minutes:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just did what Chowmi would call a "positioning" workout today. Getting ready for some more speed work tomorrow. Or, if I'm feeling tired in the am, I'll take an extra day off and do the speed workout on Friday. Going to eschew a lactate set this week -- too close to the SC. And I'm done with drylands. I fear boredom in the following days.

Didn't have any serious sinus issues today on the underwater bits, though I am am definitely suffering from allergies. Last year at this time, I had a sick taper for the SC. Spring and fall just kill me.

Had a heat nazi instructor today. She always has the heat up high. I wish I knew when she was teaching so that I could avoid her classes. I suffered miserably the last 20 minutes. I wish there were an option for slightly shorter classes as there are in other places. Surprisingly, though, did very well on the balancing postures.

    Sorry about the noseclip- I'd have trouble getting a sheet of paper in there no less my schnoz.

    I was just teasing. But it's yours now, buddy. I'd never trust it in a race.

    I am happy to see you require a nose clip for your shooters - thought I was a loser for getting so much water in my nose the first time!! Got myself a nose clip (dang those are tight! how do those synchro girls wear them for so long?) - and we're in business!

    I'm definitely a nose clip addict! I panicked the one time I forgot it for a backstroke race, and couldn't stay under as long.
