I was the one in glasses!!!

This morning I woke up at 5:30 to go to a more intense water aerobics class at 6:00. I changed into my suit and started getting ready, including putting my contacts in. As soon as I put in the first contact my eye burned tremendously. Then I did a quick calculation and realized my contacts couldn't have been in the solution for the necessary 6 hours when I went to bed at 1 o'clock. My spare contacts dried out and weren't usable so I had to be the one who wore glasses to class!

Class was much more intense today. We wore these floatation things on our feet and I felt extremely awkward in them at first. The challenge is to keep them under the water, so it is a "core" workout to keep them from flipping you up-side-down. We some other props as well and had a great time toning and even racing across the length of the pool. I just didn't feel an amazing sense of accomplishment winning because most of the women were either twice my age or size. The class, in general, is quite a self-esteem booster.
