AM: Hot Yoga

Made it through another Africa hot class. I think Insel keeps the temperature higher than the other instructors. I was melting by the end. But I was a rock star on the standing boat pose finally. (That's my fav standing pose.) Afterward, I was slightly nauseous, probably just dehydrated.

PM Massage:

Got a deep tissue massage this afternoon. I was really pummeled and feel dead at the moment. I'd love to hibernate in front of a fire on this cold rainy day. Maybe later tonight. The massage therapist noted that it's a great idea to do hot yoga before a massage b/c it makes you very pliable.


I'm still planning on taking tomorrow off and sleeping in.

    Thanks guys! Slept till 10:00. Or at least got up then.

    Daughter seems mostly better. Son doesn't seem to be improving -- has bronchitis and "rebound swine flu." My littlest one is OK so far.

    10 am? That sounds like heaven. Hell, 7:30 sounds like heaven these days.

    10 am is late. For some reason, the more I sleep, I feel groggy all day.
    They say it's better to stick to within a couple of hours of your normal rise and shine time.


    Just saw Swimmer mag by the way. Nice banter between you and Punxsatawney Jim.
    I'm with you the weights. I guess for sprinters the power lifting formula is a good idea.

    It's amazing. For years, I could never sleep in, probably due to getting up with the kids for umpteen thousand years. But, all of a sudden, I can sleep in. It's amazing.

    I actually felt pretty energized all day after being dead yesterday. But, you're probably right, sleeping in too late could be counterproductive too.

    Oh, I think sprinters need to do some low rep/heavier weights for sure. But they can do other types of lifting to good effect too. At least this is my LL-Fit theory after experimenting some.

    Whatever you're doing...you're doing something exceptionally right!
    I just saw the hundreds of top tens you've amassed in a very short time! And a few number 1's!

    Off the chain girl.
