2 / 8 / 13 Water Aerobics Work Out # 4

Friday, February 08, 2013

I made it to water walking yesterday and really felt on cloud nine when I stepped out of that swimming pool!

Today was water aerobics class.......
Now the last time I went to class I strained a few areas that are weak due to past surgeries. This time around I (1) wore my girdle! Which as one of my dear friends pointed out, was a great benefit for the pain in my lower back. AND (2) I paced myself to my OWN capabilities. It irritated me to go at a slower pace than everyone else but at least I am there and one day I will be at the front of the pool and class with all the older ladies! emoticon I happen to be the 4th youngest person in class..... sad I know but NOT FOR LONG! emoticon

I also want to point out to those that may be unaware of the fact, but most recreational pools with fitness classes have a lift chair or hoist to help their mobility challenged patrons to get in and out of the pool on their own. They can just walk or drive up to the machine and position themselves to lower into the water. How cool is that?!

I also have decided to start going to water aerobics and water walking 5 day's a week. They don't offer it on Saturday or Sunday emoticon

I think I may be getting addicted to the awesome feeling after my work outs!
Scary huh????? emoticon

    OK, so proud of you!!!! I wish I could go five days a week. I only have three days that I can go to a class. I think that if I sign up for a open pool pass I can go four days a week and work out on my own. .I order books that show different water aerobics exercises. I am going to water proof the pages and take them with me when I go on my own.
I have to do what I can do and not worry about what the others are doing in the water aerobics. I love it. It makes me feel so much better.

I know you are going to show a lot of improvement with taking five classes a week.

You go girl !!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hugs, Judy

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I think when we find that one thing that is not only good for us, but makes us feel good when we are finished, we are on top of the world! Don't feel too bad about not being able to go Saturday and Sunday, rest days are just as important as exercise days.
