Making Time Out Of The Water Productive

Monday, March 19, 2012

I decided to take a day off from swimming today due to skin that was so dry that it chapped. Instead, I did lots of walking and I caught up on some chores that I've been putting off. I never realised just how liberating catching up can be! I got laundry done, errands run and made necessary phone calls. Now I don't have any of those old chores hanging over my head. I was even able to find a new cream to put on my dry skin. Tomorrow I'm going back into the water and I'll use my new cream after my post workout shower. Hopefully it will help resolve the problem.

Good walking pace today

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Today I walked 1.2 miles in 24 minutes. I never broke my pace and was really pumping those arms as I walked. The area where I walked had several easy hills and I still managed to hold my pace. I did a 6 minute cool down after my walk, along with lots of stretches. It was a good workout for my day off. It was brisk but not overly strenuous yet I still felt like I had a workout.

Subs in Exercise Classes Change It Up

Saturday, March 17, 2012

For the past week, due to spring break, we had subs in all but two of my water classes. I really enjoy it when we have subs because they tend to shake things up a little. The workouts were vigorous with loads of cardiovascular components. I'm to the point of needing to include some more vigorous moves in my workouts or I don't feel like I've had a good workout. Who would have thought a year ago that I'd be at this level now? I'm proud of myself for making such great progress!

A Good Workout Today

Thursday, March 15, 2012

I had a rigorous workout today. This was the second day in a row that I worked out at this level. I slept like a baby last night. I hope that I do the same tonight. I will be sure to rest this afternoon to let my muscles recover. I sure hope that I'm not going to be sore tomorrow!

    Sounds like you are doing everything just right. I love my new walking route. Each day I am going a little further and stretching my comfort zone on how long it takes me to get back. If it keeps getting warmer I'll need to start leaving earlier before the sun is too high.

Your Actions Can Touch Others

Friday, March 09, 2012

The lady who commented on how my body shape has changed and asked how I did it last week said that I inspired her to workout more! She has started to copy what she has seen me do in the pool. Boy was I surprised! (And okay, I was very flattered too!) It just goes to show that you never know how your actions can touch others!
