>Just Keep Swimming

>This week I weigh exactly the same as last week.  Which considering how ill I’d been for a few days before I weighed last Monday is a Very Good Thing.  I had anticipated that no matter how good I’d been I’d gain a little so maintaining really feels like I’ve lost a bit actually.  Hopefully that makes some sort of sense.

Big news for this week is that I have been swimming again!  I absolutely love to swim but haven’t been since about last June for various reasons.  I’ve changed what hours I do at CAB though  and that means that me and one of my friends can fit in swimming.

So we went Monday and I swam 20 lengths.  There was also aqua aerobics in one side of the pool and I had a go at that for five minutes but it wasn’t very practical for me.  I was surprised I managed 20 because that was always my goal when I went swimming but as I hadn’t been for so long I’d decided to aim for 10 and hope for 12.  I was pretty sore afterwards!

Yesterday my friend took her little boy for a swim and she said she’d help me in the pool if I wanted to go with.  I managed 14 lengths – which was harder!  I aimed for 12, did 14 and did half of another thinking that 16 would be the stopping place but was so sore and was having clonus and literally couldn’t do more.  Besides which swimming with clonus probably isn’t overly safe.

We had toyed with the idea of going again today before I go to the bureau but I’m too tired for that and my friend is too busy so that’s off.  We do plan to go tomorrow though.
