Today, I did something I have never done before. I went to a belly dancing class!!! Our campus offers the class every Tuesday afternoon, and I have always had other things going on. But today, I decided to go!
I didn’t know what to expect of the class…was it cardio? Was it an ab class? Did I need to know how to dance?
The answers. No, no, and no. It was not totally any of those things. It was very light cardio with an emphasis on abs, and I did not need to be a ballerina to have a good time.
We got to wear little tribal skirts that made noise when you danced, and they were pretty awesome! I loved shaking my hips! Another plus of the class — it was about 1/8 of the size of the Zumba classes on campus! I HATE being cramped during my workouts! Overall, I would say the class was pretty awesome. The instructor said it will get more intense as the weeks progress as well, so I may have to start making it a regular thing!
Because it wasn’t the best cardio, I stuck around the gym and did a 40 minute interval workout on the treadmill. Here’s what I did:
- 1 minute walk 4.5
- 3 minute run 6.7
- Good workout
- Being involved on campus
- Meeting new friends
- Losing weight
- I would be one of very few girls
- I have never raced before
- I don’t think I would be as fast as others in the club
