finally, for the first time since i've been up here, i attended a work-out class on my day off!
down the street from our apartment lies a little yoga and pilates studio. the class schedules are posted on the front door, and fortunately a strength and stretch class was held at a reasonable time in which i could attend. the class is held in a small carpeted room, and only 3 others attended other than myself, all of which were over the age of 60. however, the instructor was still effective. my butt and calves are comfortably sore and my biceps are killing me, but all in all i felt amazing after the class and plan to make it a monday ritual.
