After work today, I went to Barre class again. This was my second time. I was a bit bloated and hormonal. I am waiting for my monthly visitor to arrive, but they say exercise is best when you are PMSing. We changed it up a bit, but still did piles and some work up on our toes, but we added tondues as well.
Typically the right for your arms, when you are doing tondues to the back is keep your arms right arm straight out in front of you (if you are working your right foot). Since I had previous ballet training, this is what I am accustomed to (hair flip). However, some people in the class haven’t had it, so she just says to keep your arm out to side, since it is easier for people. We had a little conversation on the side there about arm positions in ballet.
When it came time for the abdominal part, I think it went well. I did better than did last week. It is going to get easier. I did a plank for 10 seconds, a new record for me! I hate planking. After class, I told her that I was planning on attending her barre class next Sunday at her friend’s dance studio. She was glad to hear it. We wished each other happy Easter, then I went home to my husband.
When I walked in, he was folding laundry. He had a long week at work, and I know he was ready for the week to be over. He skipped out on the gym. I went up and got a shower, got dressed in sweats and a t-shirt, then we watched the Office until we went to bed.
