The weather has been very odd the last few days.
First, it’s blisteringly cold. Then it warms up to the point it was raining last night. Today it’s bloody cold again.
I get tired of saying, ah well, winter in Alberta, but really. . .
Today I started an aquafit class. It was a lot tougher than I thought. Trying to force foam dumbbells through the water while holding them at waist height is not as easy as you’d think. A couple of times I felt like I was going to lose control and one or both of my arms would just go rocketing up out of the water and I’d look like a drunk synchronised swimmer. Thankfully, our instructor seemed to know exactly when we’d reached our limit and she’d let us have a millisecond of rest.
Another thing that’s way hard in the water? Jogging. Fast. She had us do the equivalent of wind sprints all the while exhorting us to keep our shoulders back, our heads up, our backs straight and our stomachs in. Seriously. Water torture.
Never mind my whining. I enjoyed the class and I’m looking forward to continuing.
You know what else I enjoyed? Getting the senior discount! I don’t want to brag or nothin’, but I saved 75% of the regular cost. Ha, ha. Take that. I think I’m going to like being 60.
Well, I’m trying to convince myself that I will. Think young to stay young.
