Thursday morning I went to a water aerobics class, expecting to be the youngest one there and definitely correct. I knew the class might not be as challenging as I thought when I counted four women wearing glasses...hmmm. How can you do an intense water aerobics workout in glasses? It turns out I was the only one wearing any kind of little shorts or anything to cover up my less than perfect thighs. These women were just comfortable with their bodies or oblivious, I'm not sure which.
Fifteen kind, energetic, and welcoming older women accepted me into their class and made sure they knew my name and introduced me. The back section of the class was for the talkers...I guess this was their social hour. They would kind of bob up and down, moving their arms in the water (we were in the shallow end), while the instructor taught and motivated us.
One woman came in dancing and singing some Christmas song about snow because it was snowing outside. (Yes, I am in Idaho.) What a hilarious experience with such uninhibited, kind women.
The workout can be as intense as you make it, so I worked hard and tried to make it worth it.
Great workout with great entertainment!
