Today, I planned a cardio workout. I got dressed for my standard elliptical workout, but also through my swimsuit into the bag. Nick and Sally helped their dad take out the trash, while I finished getting ready. We were all ready to go before 8am. Usually, the kids and I don’t leave quite that early. It takes 12 minutes to drive to the playroom and a few minutes to unload and get inside. But, Kid Kare doesn’t open until 8:30am. Today, we were all the way inside the J, downstairs and almost to the playroom at 8:22am. Then, it dawned on me. I could go to the 8:30am water aerobics class. I took the kids to the locker room, got dressed, through clothes back on over my suit, dropped them at Kid Kare at 8:30 (maybe 8:28) and was in the water by 8:35. In the past, Kid Kare was upstairs and the timing wasn’t practical. Now, with the new space on the lower level (near all of the action), it was totally doable.
I was happy that the warm up had just begun. I recognized many faces from around the J, and I also saw a few people from when I used to take the class (before kids). Bobbie is the instructor and she is great. She stays on land so you can see all of the moves and she wears a microphone. I really appreciated all of the exercises since my knowledge in strength training has improved since I last took the class. I liked pushing my self with the water resistance and I got a great workout. Boy, have I missed the water. I think I am going to add this to my Friday routine. It especially fit after the Thursday afternoon BOSU Sculpt class soreness.
Next up: day with the family tomorrow (hopefully outside since we are expecting 65 and no rain!)
