But it was totally worth it.
Tonight I tried my first Thai boxing class and it was AWESOME!! I am totally addicted already.
I was a wee bit embarrassed at the start when the trainer made all the 'newbies' put their hands up, but in the end it was okay because it just meant he could keep an eye on us and give us extra help.
There was just such a good atmosphere. I was really quite nervous before we got there because I was afraid there would be hardly any girls (I was right) and the guys would make fun of me (I was wrong). That nervousness disappeared when we got going. It feels like I could try absolutely anything and if I got it wrong they would help me get it right instead of laughing at me.
And it is SUCH a workout. Just sitting at the table typing this my shoulders are burning. I sweated so hard the end of my ponytail was dripping - I have never in my life sweated that much before! Feeling sore but epic.
Then I came home and had absolutely NUMMY sausage and veg slow cooker soup. Have you ever noticed that food tastes a hundred times better when you're really, properly hungry? It felt like the tastiest meal I've ever eaten in my life. If I could move I would go and get seconds!
