This week I tried two new things! I took a Zumba class and a Kettlebell class. Both served to reinforce my un-gracefulness and un-coordination! They were both different than I expected but still very much fun and very challenging.
I also did Aquafit 4 times since my last weigh in, 2 of those classes on the same day as a Zumba and Kettlebell class. In the Kettlebell class we did a lot of things I have never done before; plank, side plank, side lunges and supermans. I managed to do them all to some degree and I am going to practice at home so next week I won't feel quite so inept. The Kettlebell class was small - just 10 women of varying sizes and degrees of fitness so it was very inclusive and welcoming. The instructor did not seem very helpful to individuals, as in modifying or correcting form, but she is cheerful and seems very patient so that's always helpful. Zumba was madhouse! I counted 40 women. It was very crowded, which always makes me anxious, but once I got into it, I just zoned into the instructor and my own feet and it was fine.
Definitely something was working though because I woke up the morning after the Kettlebell class hurting all over, mostly quads, hamstrings and abs. I am still somewhat sore today but it is better!
Although Spring has arrived, we are expecting snow tomorrow and it has been rainy the last few days. The weekend is supposed to be gorgeous though and I am looking forward to a beachfront walk at least one day.
Hope your week is going well!!!
