I Am Not Sore From My Saturday Workout!

Sunday, January 08, 2012

I'm surprised to say that when I woke up this morning, I wasn't particularly sore from my workout yesterday. I hope this means that I'm getting stronger and that I don't get delayed soreness tomorrow!

    I was just a touch sore this morning but working out in the warm therapy pool took care of it!

My New Water Class Was Great!

Saturday, January 07, 2012

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!

Trying A New Saturday Water Class

Friday, January 06, 2012

Tomorrow I will start a new Saturday deep water aerobics class. I have been doing deep water aerobics on Tuesdays and Thursdays after completing my regular water aerobics class. I'm finding that I like the challenge of the deep water a little better than working out in 4-5 feet of water. The instructor for this class will be different than the instructor for my Tuesday/Thursday classes. It will be interesting to see what kind of workout it will be. I kind of enjoy having a variety of instructors in my water classes. Every instructor tends to have her own style and focus. My muscles get worked in a variety of different ways because of it. This keeps my workouts fresh and keeps me from working the same muscles in exactly the same way all of the time. One of my workout buddies has been asking me for several weeks to join her for the Saturday class. I called her today to let her know that I would finally be joining her. She was very excited but said that she has to go to a funeral and won't be able to make it tomorrow. I'm still planning to attend by myself and am fairly certain that I'll run into some members of my Tuesday/Thursday classes, so I should feel comfortable.

I've been coupling these workouts with the January Jumpstart Challenge workouts. Since I had a little difficulty with the video for day 5, I've been able to pinpoint some weak areas of my body. My intent is to build some more strengthening as well as additional aerobics into my program. Adding this Saturday class is the first step.

Catching Up On the January Jumpstart Challenge

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

It has taken some effort, but I've finally caught up on doing the videos for the January Jumpstart Challenge! Considering the fact that I had already finished 140 minutes of working out today, doing several videos presented a real challenge. I did it but I'm afraid I may be sore tomorrow. Perhaps I'll go and soak in the hot tub at the Y if I'm too sore. I should have joined the team on time and then I wouldn't have had to double up on the first few workouts. That is water under the bridge. I'm on schedule now and that is what counts!

    Good for you for taking on this challenge!! Take care, though, and don't overdo. Glad that water aerobics seemed to work out the soreness. Hope to see you at the Y soon. -Marsha

    I was sore when I got up this morning but it quickly disappeared once I did my water aerobics class! That was a surprise!

If the answer is yes to that question, you are in for some fun calorie burning! If, like me, you are confused about all of the different videos and steps for the challenge, one team member put it all together for us. A big thank you to FITVALGAL for doing this!!!
