Jenny had told me that I need to start doing some more exercises, she thinks I should start going to exercise classes.
For a couple of weeks now I have been going to Pilates. I knew it was going to be different exercises from what I am used to but I thought I would cope ok because I am fitter than I used to be. It’s a gentle exercise rather than the faster pace of running, boxing and cycling.
I found it quite difficult though. I think I would rather go running than have to hold my leg up in the air for a minute using only my core strength. A lot of the exercises I just couldn’t do. I found myself wobbling all over the place.
I do like the fact though that I couldn’t do everything because it gives me something to aim for. And hopefully as the weeks progress I will improve.
Another class I have done today is clubbercise. It is basically aerobics to 80’s music in the dark. You have a glow stick in each hand creating streaks of multicoloured lights as you move.
It felt like I had stepped back in time and we were at a school disco being the naughty kids mucking around at the back.
As I haven’t been before and it was too dark to see the instructor at the front, I decided to follow the woman in front of me. She however was going about 3 times quicker than I could cope with and I ended up doing my own thing and looking very silly in the process.
It was however the best time I have had exercising. who says exercise is boring.
