Happy Thursday (almost Friday, really)!
Somehow I managed to literally kick my own a$$ in my classes on Wednesday. I teach two classes every Wednesday, sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's not. Apparently yesterday was one of the tougher days. So this AM, I was sore. Plus during my Boxing class on Tuesday I managed to strain my lower back. I blame the kettlebells. Side note: If you're new to them, please ask for help as they can be really dangerous to the back.
So I figured I'd take it easy today and do Yoga. Great plan.
Showed up at one of the gyms for an 11am class. I was there by 10:45 and in the studio about 10:55. No instructor to be found. Others in the class told me she's always late. She rolled in about 11:20 complaining of traffic. No offense lady, but that's bullsh*t, especially if it happens EVERY week. Class was kind of lousy. My opinion? She needs to be fired. Lateness is not acceptable. There are plenty of new/enthusiastic yoga instructors there looking for classes (I don't know this for a fact but I'm guessing).
I'm not a huge yoga fan as I'm more of a go-go-go type person (hence spin), but I recognize that it's great to add in to the mix to improve flexibility and strength in a different way. So much for the Thursday class, guess I'll have to find another to try.
Looking forward to giving Pilates another whirl as well. A good friend (hi Jacky!) recently got certified and I can't wait until she has a class.
In summary, I'm a cardio-a-holic and like working hard, but do feel that some yoga/pilates in the mix is a great thing!
Confession: I can't stand the end of a Yoga class when you just lie there, drives me nuts! Am I alone here?
