Gotta dance. Maybe.

I got a great Nordic Track T7 Si treadmill for Christmas.  I really like this model – it’s cool, it goes up and down, and it has awesome bells and whistles.  It’s been nice to have a solid piece of exercise equipment again.

I was using it the other day and was going at a brisk-but-manageable pace, when it spontaneously sped up to the maximum speed.  Yikes.  I nearly fell of the damned thing.  Call me crazy, but I don’t want to break my neck to be fit.  I am still within time to exchange it, so I called up Sears and they are going to bring me a new one.  (Thank you, Sears, for making this exchange easy.  I like it when a company makes my life easier.)

In the meantime, I won’t be using my possessed treadmill, so I thought I’d try something decidedly low tech.  Like taking an exercise class.  A friend of mine SWEARS by a new fad called Cardio Barre.

Essentially, it is a ballet class that has all of the beneficial barre warm ups, and none of the embarrassing (for me) dance routines that usually follow.  This might be just what I need.  Though I love to watch dancing, and my closest friends are some of the most talented dancers I know…I was not born with the gift.  In my mind I’m glorious and graceful, but in reality?  Um, NO.  I’ve taken close to 8 years of dance and have never broken out of the beginner class.

Sigh.

But there are lots of benefits to dance, and I’m willing to give it another shot.  Especially if no one is going to make me pas-de-bourrée across the floor.  Maybe now I’ll find my inner Baryshnikov.

Or maybe not.
