My friend invited me to try a new class. I was scared as she said it's tough, but hey I'll try it...first class was on Monday. All the ladies I talked before said they were in pain for the first week. Great, now I'm terrified!!!
Well..I wanted to die 10 minutes in!!! It's a circuit training where you alternate between ST & Cardio, NO REST PERIODS!!! Brutal!!! How Brutal you ask. Put it this way....I discovered Monday night that I move alot in my sleep...How do I know this?? Because whenever I moved, I woke up from the pain (not bad pain, just pain to say, ya you worked this muscle also). All Tuesday & this morning I had to use the sink & wall to help lower me in the bathroom. YEAH!!! That brutal!!! The guys at work are calling it military boot camp..I call it H*ll!! lol. But shockingly...on Tuesday I decided I'm going to join the next session. Why would I do such a thing when I'm still hurting?? Because I need someone to kick my a$$ since I'm not doing it myself. Plus it's completely out of my comfort zone, which I also need.
This morning I go to class... I should mention the class is at 6am. That's right I got up, still sore, at 5:25am to be terrorized...again. SO I'm waiting for class to start & a new girl was recruited to try out the class. The recruiter was telling her it's tough & points to me & says just ask her.
Me- Yeah I'm still hurting from Mondays class (and laugh)...It's tough.
Her- Ya, Well I work out.
Me- So do I
She didn't say anything back & I left the room because I was insulted. Sure I'm a bigger girl(the biggest in the class) but I DO WORK OUT!!! When I walked out I saw my friend & told her what this girl said & her eyes got big & said "OMG how rude" Her reaction confirmed to me that the girl was being rude & I wasn't just being sensitive (it is early after all it).
I go back into the room with my friend & the teacher walked us thou what we're going to be doing at each station. I was excited because we had stations today. Monday we had weights & didn't know what to expect..today I knew what was going to happen. WooHoo!
After doing a few stations, she was in front of me I can tell she's feeling it. I smiled inside..I know it's rude..but she insulted me!! A few stations later she says 'holy crap' And I said 'wait until tomorrow. lol'.
In the end, I had a great workout, the 1st round was tough as I was still stiff. But by the 3rd round my squats where low & jumps where high again, so that was good. Don't get me wrong..I still felt like I was going to die..I was just feeling the burn, not stiffness.
When the class was finished & we were getting ready to go, the girl says to me 'I'm more a cardio person'
I replied 'Me too. Running a 1/2 marathon is easier to do than this class. lol.'
She looked at me shocked.
My first thought was - that's right, never underestimate the big girl!!!
But I simply said bye & left.
It's now been a few hours & I feel good. My legs twinge abit, but not nearly as bad as Monday thou this morning. I'm even thinking I'll go for a 4.5km run after work.
