Heated Vinyassa Flow, 90 minutes

I ventured to Down Dog in Herndon for a heated flow class. http://downdogyoga.com/. It's so different than bikram. I'm not sure I could do either one exclusively without getting bored. I felt like I was lunging my azz off. I also made sure not to "cheat" myself out of the back bends and chuckled when the instructor said we had to do core work because we "don't get that elsewhere in our lives.". My balance was a bit off and I was better at the bikram type poses.

I finally got some info on the Cleveland meet after emailing someone from the Erie website. It sounds dubious and disorganized to me. They haven't been able to post the info on the USMS website, there's no sanction #, they don't say they'll submit times to USMS, there's no email for the meet director, and the order of events is beyond bizarre (see below). I can't even register on line for the meet b/c I have a mac. The last time I mailed in a registration, it was somehow "lost." And who knows if they know what a split request is in the hinterlands ... The meet will likely be small and run fast, so I would need to use one, I'm sure. Given these facts, I may have to opt for Omaha. If I do, I have to decide if I travel Friday and do the 4 50s on Sat & Sun (50 free as a 100 split) or travel Thursday to get a 100 back split in the 200 back. I think backstroke is the only 100 I can manage long course.

Going to head to the gym today.

    wow, a meet director who is ticking off sprinters as well as distance swimmers. Normally, distance swimmers get the shaft by doing the 400 IM and 200 fly 10 minutes apart and don't get me started on the 1000 and 1650 double!

    It's a completely strange OOE that helps no one. In a small meet, you can't really swim more than one event in the group of 50s, 100s, etc. And you can't even contact the meet director to ask questions. I am spoiled by PV meet directors.

    At least in Omaha I wouldn't have to worry about my times counting or getting enough rest!

    Thanks for the support!!

    We actually got the Canadians to fill out the form from their measurements, but we'll see what happens. Highly unlikely, but it's worth a shot. The daily bulkhead measurement does say "recommended" on the form...not "required". Will it pass? Chances are slim, but maybe we can get it in.

    Thanks Eric. I can't get it to work on my computer. I think I tried it before unsuccessfully as well. I will have to bore everyone and stick to words.
