I have never sweat so much in my life and I have run multiple marathons in pretty high heat. It was insane. At one point it literally sounded like it was raining in there people were sweating so much.
All day I was vigilant about drinking water (hitting over 100 oz. before class). I felt like I was peeing every five seconds. But I was glad I did this once I got started. I went to the gym first and put in two miles just to keep the streak going and then strolled over to where the class was.
I went in, got ready, put my stuff in a locker and braced myself to enter the room. I was glad I got there early enough to just lay on my mat in the room for like 10 minutes before we got started. I was nice to just take some time to acclimate before diving in.
From there we proceeded with the class and it wasn’t as scary as I was anticipating. It’s all in your head, your own practice. You just take things as far as you want and push yourself as much as you can. I really loved it, and I really feel great now.
If you have never done it, I really recommend trying it. I’m sure it isn’t for everyone but I am already dreading my 10 classes being over. I am definitely going to be facing a dilemma when they do…
