Slacker Blogger

Monday, June 3

I am falling behind on my blogging, but the good news is that I am working.

Sunday, I felt much better, so I went to my Zumba class that I love so much.  Nothing new to report there, other than I think one of the mirrors in the room is a skinny mirror.  So I am going to try to get a spot in front of that mirror every time I go from here on out.  I LOVE that mirror!

Monday, I went to a new class called 30 in 30.  I have no idea why it's called that.  I mean I know the second 30 is because it is 30 minutes long, but what is the first 30 for?  I have no idea.  So the class is only 30 minutes, but it is intense.  It's like a boot camp.  She set up all these stations and we had to do all the activities for one minute and then we had a 15 second transition to the next station.  One minute is a long time when you are doing some of these things.  Like one of them was holding a plank and then alternating lifting your knees to the side of your body.  And then I heard her say, "Put your butt down!" and I was all, "Do you want me to put my knees to the side or just hold a plank, because I don't think I can do both."  At least that's what I said on the inside.  On the outside I did my best, but I think my booty was still too high to be considered a good plank.  Before our first round was finished I was sweating bullets.  She gave us a one minute break in between rounds which was excellent for water consumption. 

It was a good class, and I'm glad they are offering it on a day where I can come.  After that was Zumba, and I wondered if I was going to make it through after that.  Unfortunately, I forgot my shoes, so I had to wear my running shoes.  As soon as class started, it was clear that that was not going to work.  My Brooks do not want to move and shimmy and pivot.  They want to move forward.  By the second song, I knew I couldn't finish the class in them or I would hurt my knees.  I took them off and gave it a go in my socks.  Which was not really good either.  They were a little too slick, and even though the floor is made for activity, it was still pretty hard.  I did have to modify my moves a little, but it was still a good workout.  At least until the 3rd to last song when I almost ate it.  I don't know what I was doing, but I almost fell.  I put my shoes back on for the last song and the cool down.

Note to self-DON'T FORGET THE SHOES!!!
