I don't think of myself as old. But every now and then I get a twinge in my knees to remind me that I am not immortal. And now, after my second pilates Barre class, my knees are very unhappy, the most unhappy they have ever been. I don't think I have more Barre Amped classes in my future. I hate to give up so easily, but I'd rather protect my knees. It's not like I live for these classes.
Still, the class did such a good job of working my core and my quads. I will have to find other ways of doing this. They have a yogalates class. I think I will try that. Maybe I can tolerate that better. Or mat pilates.
All my patients tell me not to get old. Unfortunately, there is only one way to avoid doing that.
