Oldies Exercise Class............
Add gallons of sweat pouring off me and that image above would be correct. I swear I ache in places I didn't know existed. Yesterday was the first time I had been since the end of August so to say I was out of shape wouldn't be an exaggeration.
I was shocked though when I walked into the place as it was packed. Did a sneaky count while I was stretching and there were over 50 of us there. There were only 4 lb hand weights left, so I took a couple of them, but they were way too heavy for me. So I need to pick up some hand weights of my own. Not sure if it's because golfing season is over with; so that's why people start to come to the classes?
Regardless I had a good time, though I was disappointed only one of the steroid ladies was there and I was behind her, so couldn't really see what she was up too. There was a couple of older gentlemen there whom I had never seen before; both probably in their late 70's to early 80's and one in particular when I saw him I said, "Oh Bless Him," to myself. He obviously didn't own any clothes to exercise in as he was wearing a pair of regular shoes, a pair of regular slacks/trousers and a very nice sweater/jumper. I couldn't see from where I was if he had a shirt and tie on underneath it, but that wouldn't of surprised me.
He actually sat down for nearly all the class, but I would have given him 10 out of 10 for effort, he really did well. I too sat down for bits of the class, and I am at least 20 + years younger than him!!
The good news was, what with my early morning walk and walking back and forward to the exercise class and doing the exercise class, I had logged in over 11,000 steps and over 90 minutes of exercise all by 10:30 am on Tuesday morning.
I am getting back into the swing of walking and exercising!!
