I loved my new water class that I took this morning! As expected, some members of my Tuesday/Thursday class were there, so I felt totally at ease. At first I thought that the class was going to be much easier than my other classes. We did lots of warm up exercises. I came early and did close to an hour of water jogging and stretching before class, so the warm up felt easy and good. Then the instructor suddenly made the class very aerobic and all of us were breathing hard. It was great! I was able to do about 20 minutes of the water weights this time before my arms tired. This was a big deal for me! I'm making good progress. Because there are no other classes being taught in the deep area of the pool, this class lasted a little over an hour. Everyone chatted during exercise so the time just flew by. Before I knew it, the class was over! I know that I'll be back. It was a great workout. So good, in fact, that once I got home I felt so tired that I fell asleep after eating a healthy lunch. (I'm not generally one who naps during the day.) That was 120 minutes of wonderful exercise this morning!
