Well, I’ve managed to teach a few balance classes since I’ve been back in Australia, but I had to give up my one permanent balance class when I started my new IT job in April. So apart from a couple of fill ins, and attempting to go for a walk and doing a couple of attack tracks in my lounge room, gym life for me has been pretty much non-existant.
But since doing more fill ins at Fernwood, I think I’m kinda on the books there, meaning the staff let me in to do a pump class this morning. And OMG, I’m not sure I really did it, but my legs are hardly moving right now!
It’s so frustrating, and despite being overweight and unfit, the instructor recognised that I knew what I was doing. I think it’s so much easier to join as a newbie participant oblivious to correct techniques, than to be forcing yourself proper technique and challenging yourself. Since my muscles need a proper sports massage (which I have to wait a few weeks to get in), I found I struggle too much with the leg tracks and can’t lift weight through the whole squat track and I didn’t risk doing all the lunges. All the same, I still can hardly walk!
Hopefully I can keep going to pump every Saturday and become a smart full time but FIT IT employee! 🙂
