It’s been a long time since I’ve called myself a gym rat. Even though I have a park district membership, I use it mostly for the indoor track in the winter and the pool in the summer and haven’t taken many classes there. Yet this week, I was at the yoga studio twice and at the gym twice. I’m starting to feel like a gym rat again!
I was hungry when I woke up and devoured my breakfast quickly. Then drove the 3 minutes over to the park district. In order to get a bike in the 9am class, you need to get there early. I arrived around 8:30am and got the second to last bike. While I waited, I caught a 15 minute ab class. It’s been fun getting back into the gym, and I hope that I am able to fit more classes and strength training into my new schedule.
After the class, I went downstairs to the park district office to sign the BOY and I up for an indoor Beginner Tennis class. Yes…after like 2 years of claiming that I was going to learn a new skill, I have finally taken the leap. The BOY and I both have Monday evenings open, so I took this chance to sign us up for tennis lessons. We are hoping to then find a second day each week to practice.
It’s been a long time since we’ve attempted a tennis match (I say attempt because I’m pretty awful!). The beginner class starts in January and I’m making it my goal to move up to the advanced beginner class after this session. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes. Tomorrow will be a gym free day since my Mom and I are volunteering all day at the St. Jude Fashion Show.
