Following the first zumba class, I had planned to go to the gym the next Monday for a bodypump class with my favourite instructor. Instead, I was home with a miserable cold. It's mostly gone now, but I was pretty sick for a few days. So tonight was the second zumba class, and I was feeling much better, so I figured I was up for it.
Off we went - the room where we have the class is nice - not too big, hardwood floors, decent sound for the music from the instructor's boombox. And the instructor, Stephanie, continues to work hard to encourage our energy.
Some of the rhythms were a bit easier this week - they're becoming more familiar even now. There are a couple of movements that are easy, even for me - one of them is kind of like a 60s go-go dance. We're kind of marching, and scissoring our hands above our heads at a fairly brisk pace. That one's particularly fun. Well, heck, any that I can complete successfully are fun!
I didn't really notice the hour pass - at a previous zumba class, I was just counting time for the class to be over, because I really didn't enjoy it. So far, I'm enjoying this one, and I will happily continue. I may not become a zumba master (mistress?!), but barring catastrophe, I'll likely finish the class.
