Well, I'm back on the Zumba train. Sort of. A few of my work friends and I started a six week session of Zumba Step last night. You remember step aerobics from the late 80's/early 90's don't you? Cardio to the max, while you tried not to fall off a box. Well add really loud latin music, crazy dance moves, squats and clapping and you have Zumba Step.
The first 15 minutes I thought I was going to pass out, the second 15 minutes, I wished I would pass out and the last 30 minutes I just prayed for it to end. Not really, but you get the idea. I haven't actually moved a whole lot in about a year. I loved Zumba before and I'm not sure if I'm going to love it now - but I know it's good for me and it was fun to sweat with my friends.
Today, the aches and pains started around noon time. Going up and down the stairs became a little harder, a certain move towards my phone brought a twinge in my shoulder. I was glad to have them all, it means I'm finally doing something towards making myself a little healthier.
I'm not sure if we will go past the 6 week session, but I do know that it's going to be good for me and I'm going to try not to complain about it too much!
