My ass hurts

I did something yesterday that accomplished two goals of mine: spend less money and exercise. I went to a free workout at lululemon, a fitness clothes store in the Quarry. My friend Kate sent me an email about some yoga classes, so I thought this was a yoga class. But it actually was a hip-hop bootcamp class.

It was HARD. We started with some running outside, some stairs, squats, lunges, jumping jacks, all in 95 degree heat. This was in the Quarry, where the crowd eating orange beef at Firebowl had the pleasure of watching us sweat. Then we went back inside to do lunges, burpees, pushups, side planks, and abs.

Today, I had to make myself take the stairs, because my ass hurts so much. My abs scream when I laugh, and my thighs just want to die.

I was going to post a photo of myself here, but I was too gross and sweaty looking. I don't think you want to see that.

But am I glad I went? Sure! It was free, and it was a good workout. I might not do the bootcamps again, but lululemon offers yoga classes too that I might try. As long as they're not as hard as the bootcamps.

Um yeah. I currently have to give 100% of my concentration to moving like a normal person as I walk down the hall of my office. My legs are so sore that I am compelled to grab the wall and pull myself along instead of walking. And if I sit too long and stand up suddenly... yikes, I almost fall over. I actually offended my coworker this morning when I ignored her "good morning" but the truth is I didn't even hear it because I was so overwhelmed at trying to walk up the stairs like a normal person. Yikes. Boot camp rocked my legs.
