A New Form of Torture

I went to Body Combat again tonight. I don't remember if this was my third or fourth class (I know, if I had been blogging about it, I would be able to count posts)--I think it was my fourth class, and most of the time I still don't feel like I know what is going on. Some tracks I'm starting to recognize, but that doesn't really mean much. I still get really lost, and some things I can't figure out how to do at all, like a jump kick. This class makes me realize how uncoordinated I really am. It's kind of like dancing, and I can't figure out how to get my arms and legs to go in the right direction at the right time. But sometimes I get really into and I do actually have fun.

I've been going to BodyPump now for almost five months, and Body Combat for about a month, and I even though I don't always get it right, there hasn't been anything really new or different. It's all stuff I've seen before, just usually combined in different ways. But tonight, the instructor threw in something I'd never seen before. Anywhere. And it was awful. They're called circular push-ups and I hated them. Now, I don't enjoy push-ups of any kind; on the best of days they're barely tolerable. But these are particularly horrible! I hope we never do those again!!

Good to see you're back in the world of blogging! And yes, those push-ups were mean. My back still hurts!

PS - It was your 4th combat class... since I have an entry about you joning me, it was easy for me to look back. I am impressed that you are still doing it. You've passed the "you can do anything three times" rule and now much actually enjoy it (kinda)!
