I have already done my exercise for the day and I am excited to say that it was something totally new and different: dragon boating! My hubby and I went this morning and tried out this fun activity with a local team to see what it was like. What a blast! It took me all of about twenty seconds to fall in love with this sport!
Wow! Was it ever a great experience! I loved the camaraderie that you instantaneously feel and the way that you are moving every part of your body. I had obviously been expecting a good arm workout, but my legs and core were engaged the whole time too. That was surprising and my whole frame felt like jell-o by the time we docked the boat. I am exhausted right now and think that I may just have to have a nap before too long if I want to make it through the rest of my day.
I have no idea if we will be able to afford to join the team or not, nor if its practices will work with our schedules, but I would love to look into it. I think that dragon boating could turn out to be a really exciting and fun way to stay in shape!
