Today was my first Kick-Boxing class. My neighbor invited me to join her so I went. Her kids take Tae Kwon Do at Horizon Taekwon-Do. started doing kick-boxing classes in the mornings a few months ago. Only recently did they expand the classes to have one at night.
I know that I’m out of shape, but tonight was my wake up call. I had things jiggling that I didn’t know could jiggle. I’ve never been this out of shape. Now I’m really motivated to go.
We started off with 15 laps of the dojang — 3 sets of 5 — with 30 push-ups between each set. I knew I was in trouble. I wasn’t able to do all the push ups, but I did my best. We did lots of punches, kicks, squats and lunges. We ended the night doing over 300 sit ups — ab crunches, lower ab lifts, and some for the obliques.
I was exhausted when we were done…but it was a good exhausted. I forgot how good it felt to hurt.
