They started a Zumba class here last week. I happened to see the paper advertising an introductory class on the day it was being held. I'd already gone running that day, so I wasn't too excited about getting all sweaty and tired again. I skipped it, but hoped they would do it again. I found out on Tuesday while working a food stand at a football game (raising money for the school) that it is going to be a twice a week class now. Mondays and Thursdays in the evening.

So, I went tonight. It's pretty much a woman who has the DVDs and knows the steps guilding us through it while we watch the video. I found it a lot harder to follow than the class I went to this summer with a live instructor, but it was okay. Still fun to do. I'm going to try to get to it at least once a week to break up the running. Especially since I came home with my stomach aching. I don't get much core work done running, and that's where the baby  making wreaked serious havoc, so this is very good.

I have to admit, I thought it was kind of funny at the end of it that everyone was going on about tired they were, and how they were going to go home and take a nice long bath. Me? I went to the gym and ran a mile at a fast pace (for me) because I was feeling that good. Exercise is awesome.

You're right, exercise IS awesome and energizing. I exercise through dancing and have a ball doing it. Have fun with your Zumba Classes!
