I wondered whether I'd be aching as I type this post this morning, but I'm not. The reason I may have been is that last night I went to aqua aerobics, after an absence of probably a year. Aqua aerobics is hardly one for the Olympic athelete but I enjoy it. Its quite fun, if you can get over silliness of it.
Last week's activity was a different matter entirely. Last week, for the first time ever, I went to a yoga class. Where I greeted aqua aerobics like a comforting old friend, yoga was a new strange creature to me. I am possibly the least flexible person in the world - its not an age things - even as a child I couldn't touch my toes. And how much did I ache afterwards? It didn't the decency to wait until the next morning - I started aching that day.
I was disheartened but have come to the conclusion that I should stick with it for the 8 week course because it is stupid to give up on something so quickly just because I wasn't the best in the class. Going back to the issue of New Year's Resolutions, I think this is a good starting point, not just for the exercise, but for trying something new and getting outside of my comfort zone.
If I don't post for a few more days it may be because I ache too much to type.
