Korean Boot Camp

I survived my first Korean boot camp tonight. This was conducted all in Korean (Funnily enough) and I speak only a little. (A few phrases) This was basically just a circuit and we went around doing each exercise for 30 seconds and then moving to the next one.

It was a little difficult to understand some of the finer points but I got the general idea pretty easily.

It’s amazing how much you can understand from someone who speaks a different language if you actually listen and just try to understand instead of putting up that mental block. Try it some time, if you get the chance. Pay attention to expression, intonation, common words etc. It really helps a lot.

The point is, I stepped out of my comfort zone today. I tried something new. (Really new)

I have never actually really done a boot camp style class before so it’s a good effort that my first one was in a foreign language.

And guess what, I had fun. I made a fool of myself and am probably a lot of people’s dinner time stories tonight.

And you know what, I’m so o.k with that. (I’m here to entertain.)

Most importantly, I moved my body today.

And it felt good.

Let’s see if it still feels good tomorrow.

Tomorrow I’m going to listen to my body and probably rest. I might do some yoga if it feels good or I might just have a hot bath.

Repeat is on Thursday. Two days to practice my synchronized star jumps dance.

Yes, that is a thing here.

Wish me luck.

And go and move your body today.
