I took it easy this past week (sorta). I’m feeling a lot more comfortable in this whole training thing especially the swimming.
Except this past week’s swim clinic was a hot mess.

I got an email two weeks ago about rooftop Zumba. I like dance classes but I don’t love them but it sounded cool so I decided to go.
Last Wednesday was really hot but especially hot because we were on a roof top at 6pm and there was no shade whatsoever. The event was held at Complete Body on East 57th Street and it was a pretty nice rooftop.
I’m not sure how I ended up in the front row but it happened. Zumba premiered their “Zumba Extreme” format which was hard but do-able. I’ve taken Zumba before and the classes are super fast paced. Since there were beginners in class, the amazing instructor, Sam Salazar, slowed some moves down and gave a little bit more instruction than I’m typically used to.
