Frank was great as usual. There were quite a few new people (three teenage girls) and I brought a co-worker. The new girls were all lined up in the back row behind me. After the first breathing exercise was over one of the girls, a very slender blonde gal sat down abruptly then suddenly was flat on her back, her head hitting the floor and not gently! I was standing there in shock, holy shit she just passed out! I tried to sneak a look at the newbie I brought to see if he was freaked out, but he looked unphased. I've been going for 2 years and have never seen that happen! Frank rushed over to make sure she was ok (she came to right away) and he handed the headset to Roberta, who was practicing in the front row with me and took the girl out on the lobby. He was only gone for first set of half moon, came right back in. The other two girls, to their credit, did not freak out about their friend, they stayed in and continued on. The one that passed out came back in about 15 minutes later and proceeded to finish the entire class! I was totally impressed. The guy I brought did pretty good. He did leave the room for a bit and come back. I asked him in the lobby afterwards what he thought and he said while he was in the lobby taking a break he signed up for a week! I had a very very strong class with Frank and felt good going into the second class. I changed my towel out, changed into dry clothes and had a zico and emergen-C to get ready for round two.
Round two: It's a knockout. Michelle is down for the count. I'm not even going to get into detail about the trainwreck that ensued between 130 and 3. Suffice it to say I sat out all of triangle, all of camel and was laying in savasana ALOT the last 15 minutes of class because I couldn't really even move at that point. After class my ears were plugged and my chest was tight. This always happens to me second class on a back to back double. I do not know why. It takes me a couple of hours to recover from it and get back to normal. I have not heard anybody else having that problem but me. Hmmmm. Weird. Well, it was miserable but it's over and I'm all caught up! Yippee! Now come hell or high water I'm getting to class everyday because I do NOT want to do another double. It is TORTURE!
