I think it is worthy of note that this blog was number 2 in the Google search results for the above phrase.
And it has reminded me that this week has been strange because, as I have mentioned, our old gym has closed down and we are in the process of trying to put together a new exercise schedule at our new place - Gold's Gym - which is huge, and shiny, and new, and very impersonal compared to the old place where instructors would sometimes call you individually to tell you they were dropping a class or something.
So far I have been to a Hip Hop class on Monday night - much more fun than the Thursday night one I have been to a couple of times even if I did end up with bruised knees - and a Yoga class with Lucy yesterday. That was my first ever yoga class so I don't know how it compares with other yoga classes, but I think I will keep going. The only problem was that other people kept wandering in and out to use the equipment in the room which I found rather distracting and annoying. Am I wrong to be irritated by such things? Should I be so relaxed, or concentrating so hard that I don't even notice them during a yoga class? If so then I look forward to have been practising long enough to be able to get into such a state. I think I will complain to the manager and see what happens. I asked the guy on reception but he was no help whatsoever.
Tomorrow Gary and I will go at 8.00am and I will go to a step class, and then at 9.00 we will go to a weights class - coincidentally these classes are at the same time as the classes we used to go to on Saturdays.
We will keep trying different classes until we find ones we like and then try and stick to a routine. I am really worried that I will end up not going and undo all the work I have done over the last couple of years.
I will probably go quiet over the weekend. I have my Open University exam (my last one yay!) on Monday morning and I really ought to be revising. Luckily the subject matter is stuff I already know quite well, but I don't want to get complacent and end up failing because I don't know as much as I think I do.
