Slow and steady

Friday, October 05, 2012

Just putting one foot in front of the other is all I can do some days.
I cannot wait for my local gym to reopen the pool. I get to at least two water aerobics classes per week and walk at least two days a week out doors or at the mall.
I have a friend who likes to do treadmill but I just have not been able to do cycle class because it hurts my bum.. They say that is normal and I should purchase a pair of padded shorts. Can't afford them this week had to have a valve replaced in my car.

Looking forward to the wood peckers visible in my tree when all the leaves fall off.

    I used to love to swim but after licking an envelope and having a severe allergic reaction I developed psoriasis and have been having light therapy, I've been told I shouldn't swim as the chlorine in the water is bad for my skin now!
I miss it emoticon
But I do enjoy walking so I've upped that a bit more now!

    I hope you find something else that you can do to help keep you fit until your pool opens again. But you are right, slow and steady truly does win the race. I've never heard of padded shorts before. I'm going to look into them, because sometimes my bum gets pretty sore after I've been on the bike for awhile, lol!

Hope you see lots of woodpeckers soon. That photo is absolutely beautiful! :)

    I need the padded shorts also! The instructor says it takes a few weeks to get used to the pain. HUH? Plenty of other things to do than spinning!

    Slow and steady is a great way to do it, fast and furious tends to burn out and leave you stranded. Good luck with the pool opening, I know that will feel great. I do love to swim/do water aerobics so much, and it's so good for us. I really wish we lived closer and could get some fit mins done together!! Hope your weekend is great. Have a lovely day! ( I would love to see woodpeckers in my back yard!)

    The padded shorts become more necessary when the natural padding on you bum departs.

Make Today a Great Day!
