Blogging about my Bikram experience just isn't gaining any momentum ever since Lauren and Adam posted their experiences. If you want an entertaining recap about our experience, go here and here. Thanks so much to The Bikram Institute of Scottsdale, especially to Andrea, the owner, Robin, our patient instructor, all of the friendly employees
and the homeless guy in the parking lot who offered to pat me dry. I will tell you that I wasn't that phased by the Bikram experience because I couldn't do half of 'dat shit'.
The instructor spent a bit of time with me, but quickly realized that I would need the kind of special attention reserved for Warren from the movie There's Something About Mary.
I was pretty much able to handle the heat. Had to stop a few times and not move, but overall, the heat was what I expected. I had hydrated pretty well that day, and spent some time talking to others with experience. And I do like to sweat, but it never occurred to me to wring my towel out in the parking lot.
I highly recommend Bikram to those who are looking for something different. This would definitely count as cross-training and also as a mental break from life-stress--all you can think about for 90 minutes is staying alive.
