I am having another quiet week with the walking. Should get in 20 + miles no problem, but no where near as much as I was. Need to get back into it. My original goal was three miles per day and I do seem to be doing that so that is good.
There was only one exercise class on for the old folk this week on Tuesday. This week she was working on our balance. It seems some of us have great balance and some of us flounder around like a beached whale on sand........oh wait that was me😋 The steroid ladies were there doing all they could to get their gold stars, and a fine job they did...........
Now I would like to say this balance thing was a piece of cake but it wasn't. We had to walk in a straight line backwards and forwards, heel to toe just like you do when the police stops you for drink driving......you know what I mean!! I had my eye open for anyone who sailed through that exercise......I know I didn't.
The hardest one of all though was when you had to stand on one leg then close your eyes and balance. You should all try this, it is very difficult. It's all to do with perception and mind over matter. I of course held onto my chair as the "beached whale on sand" vision came over me again.
Now I would like to say this is all we did, but no, she put us through our paces again. However I have the situation sussed out and take a hand towel with me to wipe my sweating brow, head, back, neck and all that good stuff. Was disappointed though to discover there was no class on Thursday, as I am getting right into it.
Finally do you remember the aerobics fashion from the 80's?
Well one lady was having a flashback, and no she didn't look exactly like the woman above, but you could tell she was channeling that feeling...........which is fine when you are 20, but not when you are 70!!! Oh and yes she was wearing the headband........
