Today I decided to try out the turbo kickboxing class. I've gone to several of the classes and am usually perfectly sore afterwards. Sore enough to feel it, but not so sore that it's very uncomfortable. Yesterday was an exception. At the Absolution class the teacher told us to get in touch with our "inner pooch." I wasn't sore at all afterwards and I never became one with my "pooch." (Your ab muscles below your belly button, apparently.)
All of the classes that I've done were 25 minutes and 25 minutes was just the right amount of time. Today, though, I decided to do the turbo kickboxing even though it was an hour. Well, I had to leave after a half hour.
Seriously, I was dying.
It felt like running sprints in basketball. Run in place. Run to the side. Touch the ground. Punch up while jumping. Jumping jacks.
My face was red. My shoulders were red. And, I was sweating. (This is unusual for me during working out. Think it's time for me to push myself a little harder?)
Needless to say, I'll be back on Tuesday evening to work on my endurance. Stay tuned.
