I finally did it
I stumbled out of bed at 6:30 today (on my day off no less), pulled on my bathing suit (thank you for the miracle of Lycra), and drove to my first water aerobics class. I was more than a little hesitant when I walked into the locker room and found all women at least twice my age. I immediately thought that the class synopsis which read "low-medium impact" should say, "about as much exercise as a stroll around the block." It turned out that I had a lot of fun! The teacher and classmates were very inviting. I even found some fellow knitters! The work out was decent and the teacher promised to step it up a bit next week. She claimed she took it easy on us this week since it was my first class.
It definitely felt nice to be weightless, although a bit cold, in the water. When I stepped out of the pool, I felt as though I had gained an extra 100 pounds. I'll definitely try it again next week.
