Aquafit (shallow) 45:00 [0]

2nd of 3 free visits to the Y. First time trying aquafit. Was supposed to be in deep water, but the floor wasn't cooperating, so shallow instead.

I may have been, shall we say, the participant with the least amount of gray hair. Not sure if it's because it was a weekday morning, or if that's the typical demographic.

Everyone can adapt the workout by choosing their own intensity. Still, didn't feel it was anywhere near as aerobic as running or spinning, but it was fun for a change of pace and hopefully provides other benefits.

Swimming 15:00 [0]

Laps before/after aquafit class. First time swimming in... several decades?
Funny how 25m looked so puny and short before going into the water. Turns out it's plenty long!

Strengthening (machines -- various) 1:00:00 [0]

Tried out the various weight machines. Fun to tack on before or after a class.

Spinning (class) 40:00 [0]

First of three free trials at the Y. First time "spinning".

It was about as much fun as pedaling like mad and going nowhere could be. But once I got over that and just appreciated it as a low impact cardio activity, it was decent. Interval-based and definitely worked up a good sweat. The instructor was great. No complaints from the leg, even with the standing parts.

Speaking of spinning, why oh why did the locker I chose just *have* to be the one with the spider in it. One of those pale green ones often found in bathrooms. Moved my stuff to another locker to give the spider back their space. We both lived to tell the tale.
