Lately, I've been struggling with exercise. More precisely, I've been searching for a new routine since the Y radically changes it's program during the summer. My plan had been to use this to try new classes since I couldn't take spinning 3 times a week.
So far, I've flunked out of step and zumba. I'm incredibly uncoordinated. Dislexia makes it hard for me to follow a step for a while and both classes moved on to the next step before I could master the one they had been doing. Couple this with not knowing my right from my left, and all I feel is frustrated and dumb.
I've been working pilates at home on days I don't have that class and my hip flexors are screaming in pain.
I really need to find something to work that muscle group so it doesn't hinder me.
I'm trying another new course today and will see if I can handle it. Supposedly it's for people who are older (yes) or new to exercise (no) or inflexible (yes). I'm hoping 2 out of 3 means the class will work with enough time for me to learn the moves.
