Something New?

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Well I am going to try something new. Little nervous definetely out of my comfort zone. I signed up for swimming lessons. Those of you who have read my blogs before know about my knee problems. I know swimming is great excercise but I am scared. I think I could save myself if I really had to. I know my knees really need a break. I just hope I am getting a good enough workout compared to my running. I don't want to gain any of weight back that I have tried so hard to get off. My swimming lessons start next week. Sometimes I get so nervous in the pool trying to do laps that I freak out with my breathing. I just hope I don't embarrass myself in front of others in the pool. Ha ha I really want to know how to swimm the proper way. I would love to try a Triathalon & you definetely need to know how to swim for distance. This will also give me a break when I want to switch up my workout. That's what makes working-out more fun too! Stepping out of my comfort zone will hopefully give me the confidence to do other things. I hope everyone has a good rest of your week & good luck on your weigh in's on Saturday! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I too fear swimming but have wondered if a triathlon is in my future. Can't wait to follow your journey with it. So inspiring!

    Good for you! You'll do great and find swimming is great exercise! It works all the large muscles and burns many calories. I know how to swim but I don't like putting my face in the water. Maybe I'll venture back to the pool too...... emoticon
