Hot Yoga, 90 minutes:
I decided to go to yoga right after swimming to stretch out some of my muscle soreness. And I feel great now. However, I apparently have to find a time besides Sat. at 4:00 pm to go b/c the same jerk was teaching the class today. I find him, and his voice, incredibly annoying. He just raked a newcomer over the coals.
The speed work felt a little better today. I kept the yardage down and just sprinted b/c I was due for such a workout and I am hoping to go to my team practice tomorrow. Edit: Crap!!! My team practice is in the diving well b/c there's a meet tomorrow. Doesn't do me a damn bit of good in terms of working on starts. I will probably sleep in and do my own workout to avoid the hassle of swimming amidst noise and a swim meet.
Goggle question: Do people like dark or clear goggles best? I have trouble seeing with some of my dark speedo goggles in poorly lit pools.
I spent the late morning/early afternoon at the Polar Bear Regatta. The weather was actually fairly ideal -- sunny and about 50. FortSon's lightweight 8 hadn't been having a good week of practice. But they did well today, winning the lightweight race, beating last year's state champs and were only beaten by 1 heavy weight boat. Happiness!
Mr. Fort went on a pretty fast 18 mile run today and is probably on the couch for the night. He seems to have succeeded -- finally -- in rehabbing his hammie and hip substantially. He is planning a marathon in May. He's in pretty amazing shape from all his running, cycling, lifting and core work at the moment.
