Bikram yoga, 90 minutes
Due to travel, taper, injuries, I haven't been to bikram since Nov. 4 -- along two month hiatus. Of course, I have been stretching regularly since then. Flexibility -- very good. Heat tolerance -- much better than expected. Balance -- meh. I tried to be cautious of my ankle. It seemed pretty crowded for a 2:00 pm weekday class.
Bike, 30 minutes
