I did today. It was hard as hell. 1/3 of the exercises, I couldn't even wrap my head around long enough to fathom how to get into the right position. The instructor was very kind and patient with me. She told me I did a great job, and followed instructions well.
Some of the exercises I did okay. None of them did I feel I did 'very well'. It was just incredibly awkward, and I felt like an overblown sausage trying to get into and hold positions that seemed to be relatively easy for the other people. I know that I should definitely not compare myself to them, as this was my first time. But dang.
I'm not saying I would never try it again. But, there is a whole calendar full of other classes that I am eager to try in hope that I will love one of those and be satisfied in the notion that at least I tried TRX once, and I know what it is.
Next week I'm trying a Kettlebell class. We'll see how that goes.
I've been doing awesome with my running. I've mapped out a 3.11 mile course around my neighborhood, and have worked up to be able to 'run' the whole thing without stopping or having to walk any of the way. I've been consistent in running 6 days a week (sometimes the 3.11 mile course, sometimes shorter ones) for the past month.
My next goal is to run that course in less time. Currently, I can run it in 39 minutes.
And to find a class that I love, or at least feels a lot less awkward and impossible than TRX, so I'll be able to continue to do that through the winter if/when I won't be able to run as much.
