Yoga class after work. Instructor said it was called hip openers but was really stretching all the muscles around the hip and not meant to strain the hip joint itself. Seemed to stretch lots more besides!

Evening treadmill run at home (new machine). Steady at 4.7mph. Seems to work ok, though the deck seems a bit springy. I think it's a feature but it reminds me of running on sand; not really that bad but my shoes scuffed the belt a few times. Going to have to pick my feet up more.

Just finished assembling a new treadmill in the basement. Tested the belt alignment and controls with a short faster paced walk. Initial run test in proper workout clothes coming soon.

3x( 50 fr pull + 50 br pull + 50 whip kick + 50 dolphin kick)
2x( 50 salute drill ba + 50 zipper drill fr)
had some extra time so he offered some options or a challenge, I took the challenge
50 fast fly + 50 choice easy (fr)

He wants me to focus more on kicking: 6 beat fr & ba, and dolphin for fly
