Patience and Coordination

Last night I went to the kickboxing class offered on Wednesday nights at the gym. Just so it is noted I have not been to kickboxing in about a month so I was scared about how well I actually could do. We started off with the jump rope exercise (15 mins of different speeds) because of my ankle I am allowed to do what I can (told by instructor do what you can as long as you are moving that is what counts - I like him) after that we moved on to partnering up (one with mitts and one with gloves) and work on the punching exercise then we moved on to kicking (and since I am not coordinated you can feel for my partner). Boy let me just say how old I feel today ha! I left shaking (happens sometimes after working out) and then getting home starving and ready to relax. In all it was a good hour spent and I really appreciate everyone in the class being patient with me since I have not been in such s long time and remembering some of the steps is hard (it is amazing what you can forget in such a short time). Tonight I am off from the gym but tomorrow the gym is offering a new class called Line Dancing let's just say I am very intrigued!
