My vacation started off with a day of even harder work. TurboKick Instructor Training with Mrs. Fatass. That's right... now not only are we Zumba instructors... we're TurboKick Chicks also!
Now... it was no picnic. That training was BRUTAL. Amanda, the instructor, had no mercy and we moved almost constantly for the whole 8 hours. Ouch! And used arms in a way I am so not used to. I woke up Sunday and I couldn't lift my arms for all the punching we did. Totally awesome though.
Sunday was the last Trio Fitness Sunday for the month and we rocked out TurboKick and then I taught Zumba while Sue did Zumbatomic. Then my 75 minute class at the Y. Then I wanted to crawl in to a hole and let my arms and legs fall off... and I got to start my real vacation.
Monday was a chill day, prepping for travel and going to pub trivia with the guys. Awesome times were had.
Then the real fun began. 2 days in the wilds of Washington, DC.
Marshall, Matt and I went to DC and totally did the tourist thing. First up? Arlington National Cemetery.
This was not my first trip to Arlington, but I am always shocked at the sheer immensity of it. The fields of fallen servicemen. JFK's gravesite and the Tomb of the Unknowns still give me chills. It's just... moving. I'm glad we got to go again.
