Zumba in the parkPosted: August 4, 2011
Yoga today was easy, but good. I believe that counts as my stretching for the day! I’m 4 for 4 in the August Fitness Challenge.
But let’s backup to last night… One of my girlfriends asked me if I wanted to go to a Zumba class Wednesday night. It would be free, but it’s outside at a park. Hmmm… let’s see. It’s our 32nd day over 100 degrees, we are having record-setting high temps (around 110), so of course I said, “Hell yeah! How hot can it be at 8pm??” 107 degrees. That’s how hot. In case you were wondering.
There was a nice view at the park.
I brought 3 bottles of water in varying states of frozen-ness. (Is that a word?)
|Am I blurry from the heat??|
I thought it might be miserable, but really it was very, very fun. It wasn’t too hot, I drank all the water, and the instructor was really good! I’ll have to look her up and see where she teaches normally. I really miss Zumba. It’s how I lost all my weight (75 pounds! WOOHOO!) because I never got bored with it. I could tell my hips and shoulders were out of practice. Zumba would probably be great cross-training with running…
Well I’m off to a Chamber of Commerce bowling mixer. I got a “new” bowling shirt. Dad said, “Bowling attire required!” I don’t think he knows what he’s in for
