AM Hot Yoga:
Made it to class #5. I seem a tad more flexible already. And I'm really glad my transverse colon is apparently getting a massage. lol. It still seems somewhat exhausting and harder to exercise afterward. I guess at some point it's supposed to shift from exhausting to refreshing ...
I also had a bit of an internal chuckle when the instructor said that we were "flushing out scar tissue." Getting a little carried away there!
I was wondering why Bikram studios must be carpeted and found this:
700 variety swim, kick, drill
5 x (50 UW cruiser shooter w/fins + 15 pullouts) @ 1:15
1 breath at the the turn
5 x vertical kick @ 1:15
30 seconds with hands at side, 10 seconds in streamline, squat jump off bottom (12 ft deep), 20 seconds rest
5 x (25 AFAP shooter on back w/fins + 50 EZ)
Other Speed Work:
3 x 150, done as:
25 EZ speed power fly + 25 EZ DAB + 25 AFAP doggy paddle + 25 EZ DAB + 50 free EZ
1 x 50 fly AFAP w/fins (25ish)
Total: 2350 + VK-ing + 75 pullouts
My ass and hammies are a bit sore from the plyos, lunging, and squatting. Maybe I'm just imagining it, but they feel tighter/stronger with this new regimen. (And I'm sure my ass is probably getting bigger too. )
Found this site, which has loads of plyo info:
Hoping to swim with both Speedo and Jazzy at noon at GMU tomorrow!
My son just came home from cross country practice with an ankle sprain all taped up and iced. Could ruin the end of his cross country season for the second year in a row. Flexy ankles are so easy to sprain ... (Been there, done that.)
Meanwhile, Mr. Fort, who has been battling a hip injury forever, just had an MRI. He may have some labral tearing around his hip socket. His doctor said PRP was a possibility. I hope he doesn't need surgery b/c he would be just impossible to live with!
