Wish me luck! I have joined a pilates class on Tuesday evenings. Unfortunately, my training days are off schedule this week. I had to take a "mental health" day yesterday, so my day #1 started today, which means I lifted today will again tomorrow. Wednesdays are usually an off day for me, (which is why I opted to take pilates on Tuesday nights so that my body could rest up the following day). However, since this week's schedule has shifted a little, I lifted today, will do the class tonight and then lift again tomorrow. YIKES! Hopefully next week I'll be back on track!
I'll check in later to give an update on the class!
Well, first night of pilates did not start off great. I must have got my times off and I arrived 15 mintues late. Tisk Tisk! Anyone that knows me knows I cannot stand to be late to anything! I must have turned purple with embarrassment when I walked in! Thankfully, I only missed introductions and I was able to join in immediately.
We learned the five basic moves:
The Roll Up
One Leg Circles
Rolling Like a Ball
Double Leg Stretch
I got some great stretching accomplished; learned how to "scoop" and engage my lower abs and lengthen the spine; and also learned some great breathing techniques. We'll see how next week goes!
