Today I went to my first aqua aerobics class! The doctor says it's the best exercise for pregnancy, and since I need all the help I can get, I figured I'd give it a try. One of our city pools offers classes for $3, and they offer it Monday through Thursday after work, and Saturday mornings, so it's perfect for my schedule and close enough to my office.
I must admit that I was a little intimidated walking in there, not knowing what in the world I was getting into, which in actuality was a very cold pool, but in the end I made a friend, albeit a kind elderly woman who explained all the exercises to me in detail as the instructor called them out. Yep, I was the youngest, the smallest, and probably the only pregnant woman there (as far as I can tell).
Unfortunately the hour-long class was cut in half due to thunder (even at an inside pool?), better safe than sorry. Hopefully these summer showers will hold off from 6:30 to 7:30 each night from now on. I gotta get my $3 worth!
