I went to cardio dance today (45 min class). Then I decided to stick around for Bootcamp class (intermediate). I knew the class was going to be tough when I looked around and a lot of the people in the class were men, and they all looked pretty in shape. I started to have my doubts at the beginning, but decided to try it any ways.
I made it through 20 minutes of the class. I chose to walk out at break because I knew my body could not physically handle 25 more minutes of the class after 75 minutes of kettlebell yesterday and then cardio prior to the class. On the bright side: a lot of the body builder looking guys looked like they were HURTING and none of them had done a fitness class prior. I was keep up with them all the way until the 20 minute mark. I didn't want my body to physically shut down in the middle of class so I stopped.
I feel bad for walking out, but at the same time I was actually proud of myself. I was hitting the push ups and then getting right back up to do the squats and other exercises with the rest of the class. I think I will have to work myself up to a full 45 minutes of that class.
Despite being intimidated by the appearance of the class members, I decided to try the class any ways. I went out of my comfort zone, and I was pretty proud of myself for that.
Things I'm thankful for:
Having a day off tomorrow.
