Oh no, the pool is closed for 2 weeks

Monday, July 02, 2012

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon What am I going to do? I went to the pool today all psyched ready to relax in the nice warm soothing water, oh and exercise too. I was almost running into the hospital. I was anticipating the feeling, the electricity, the energy that I get for the workout. I looked to my left, there is a view of the pool, and it was emoticon emoticon drained, not one but both. My heart sunk. Remember I didn't go last week except Monday because of my knee. Now I could kill Robert for telling me not to go. Wait till I see him tomorrow. I talked to Rhonda and she said for two weeks, they have to do repairs not only clean. OMG. I couldn't go to the fitness center, I haven't seen my ortho.

Why can't they do one pool at a time? I was expecting them to close for cleaning, 5 days, but not this. They close 1 week twice a year. The life to get people into the pool is broke and some stuff has to be done while the pool is drained.

New Britain does have outdoor pools but you pay big $$$ to swim and it is per day. Not only that you are putting up with a bunch of screaming kids. Not my idea of fun. We are suppose to go to the beach this week but you can't exercise at the beach. I am going to look into if they have adult hours at the pool. I know Gary said Simsbury does at night. Beggars can't be choosers I guess. These are times that I wish I had money and had a pool or Gary still lived in Wethersfield and had the pool. It couldn't have happened at a worse time. My knees are giving me problems again.

Well, I just wanted to vent. Now I am going to confirm my appointment for Thursday with my ortho Dr. and call the recreation at the town and get information. Proactive. If I can't go to the fitness center, I will cross that bridge when I come to it. No use in stressing about it now.

    Maybe the next few weeks can be filled with "new" exercises and then a long soak in a candle lined bathtub!

    You might be amazed at what a warm soak in a bathtub can do. You can do some movements there. Give it a try and let me know if it helps.

    They couldn't do repairs on one and then get it up and running before doing the other? I hate when they shut the pool down-some of us really have to have that water exercise available to us. I think if there is another pool close by your place to pay dues for the people who NEED the water exercise.

    Sympathies! I love my pool. Our city has a discount pass for a certain number of swims, and hours just for lap swim (fewer kids to dodge around). A fitness center in your area might have a "trial" membership of a week or so to get in some pool time? Another option: resistance band video on SP to keep up your muscle tone, and "swims" exercises to keep your core ready to go as soon as the pool reopens!

    I hate that they've closed both pools. I agree, they should've done one at a time. I hope things go well with your ortho doc and maybe you'll be able to get into the fitness room. I hope it all works out!!
