We miscalculated the time, so we had to run a bit to ensure we caught the train, which we managed, but that short outburst of exercise left me winded. Ouch. Fitness levels: -3. The class was actually nice. It wasn’t crazy hard, but of course, having no hand-hip-foot coordination whatsoever, I found it difficult. If I tried to just move to the sound, I could, but as soon as I tried to move nicely, I was getting all confused. We also did a lot of arm exercises, during a full song, which was painful, but I really liked as normally …
