my first tae kwon do class in over twenty years!!
Austin has wanted to do tae kwon do for a couple of years now and last fall I started giving it some serious thought. I took it for a couple of years as a teen and know it is a great workout, stressed discipline, focus, trying your best etc. I just didn't like the thought of three nights a week having to take him there and back.
When it hit me.
I could take it, too.
So, we signed up last month and started this evening.
I had Cameron come and take a picture of us before class:
Are we cute? Our belts were done up incorrectly, though, but got fixed before the class started.
And it was quite the workout. I started getting a cramp at one point.
I'd thought with running it wouldn't be so hard, but as I reflected on this in the tub this evening, I realized that when I run, I set my own pace. Here, someone else is setting the pace. Quite different.
We go back tomorrow evening.
Hopefully the soak in the tub tonight will help me not be too sore for tomorrow's class.... ;)
