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!

Are You Doing the January Jumpstart Challenge?

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!!!

I Used Water Weights Today

Monday, January 02, 2012

I was able to use water weights today in our water aerobics class. So far, I'm not terribly sore. I was very careful as per my physical therapist's instructions. The water was very cold too so after class I sat in the hot tub for about a half hour. We'll see how I feel when I wake up tomorrow morning! I'm told that the water will be much warmer tomorrow. It was only 80 degrees today and it is usually at least 85 degrees. I do much better when I exercise in warmer water but in keeping with my no excuses policy, I did it today any way.
