The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
New pool, new instructor, new schedule
I made a trip to a slightly closer pool for a noon aqua aerobics class today. I got there in plenty of time, and even ran into susandennis half a minute after I got there.

This pool was very different from the other one in several ways, including the locker & shower rooms and the pool setup. I wished they had benches right next to the lockers along with a backpack hook, but I made it work (and used a locker for once).

And of course the instructor was different. In fact, it was a guy for once and a very cute one at that. It was so amusing, it looked like he had a 'package adjustment' issue every other exercise. I'm going to pretend there's some meaning to that, though probably not.

I got several cramps throughout the exercises. It could be the slightly cooler water, but it's probably an indicator I need to exercise more. I'm going to go back Thursday, and probably Saturday to the other pool this week as well. The Saturday one is so early, though, that I feel like I can't do much Friday night. I doubt I'll stick with that one past Susan's hiatus. Plus, eye candy.

I get cramps often during class - mainly in my feet and especially if I keep my toes pointed for a long time. It's very annoying.

Ah ha! That's good to know. I've occasionally gotten a minor cramp in the arch of one foot in previous classes, but, like you said, un-pointing my toes relieves that for a while.

Today I had a major cramp in the arch of one foot, a moderate cramp in one calf, and a moderate cramp in the muscles behind one thigh (mix and match which leg was cramped by what). I know I was pushing myself quite a bit, though, so I'm really the only one to blame. I'm okay with that, though; just means I need to work at it more.

I'm so very glad for the belt floating device when those cramps started cropping up in multiple places. I could just relax for a moment rather than sink to the bottom. :-P

sinking to the bottom would really disrupt the class... please don't do that :)

I did notice that you are getting quite comfortable in the deep end... good work!

But... but... then I could get mouth to mouth resuscitation! *dies* hahahaha

Seriously though, I have gotten quite comfortable with that belt floatie.
