OK, feeling good now. I know I will be sore, but it'll get easier (or so Todd and Tonya say....) The class was pretty intense with a lot of cardio bursts ("Wait, you want me to sprint?!") and squats ("No seriously, my legs will fall off.") The class started with a warmup that I thought was harder than any workout I've had in 2 years. Lots of jumping. Lots of calf pain. Then we ran around the parking lot with high knees, butt kicks, side shuffles, football runs, and sprints. Yeouch. Then we split into groups and did bicep curls and lunges. Then we did tricep dips on the bleachers and more jumping squats. Oh, I forgot (or perhaps my mind is trying to make me forget) this one thing we did where you wrap the bandy thing around your waist and pull a partner across the parking lot. That (and the warmup) were the hardest things. I am proud that I did it, but it was MUCH harder than expected. I don't think the humidity helped, either. At least I didn't break my barf streak. That's the true test.
The boys and I went to Reston Town Center today to see Mr. Knick Knack. They were not impressed. Give us the library dorky guy anytime. Mr. Knick Knack is just too frou frou for us. Since we were there, we surprised Bampa for a visit, then had lunch at Mommy's school with our friend Laura. I love me some Bagel Cafe.
