Taking it Easy Ain't Easy

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

The water felt so good today. I was so glad to see familiar faces in the water aerobics class. As agreed, I took it very easy, in spite of what I was told to do by our new instructor.

When I arrived about a half-hour early, I used the noodle to float and gently bicycled around the pool. When the new instructor arrived (a little late), we got busy with a few warm-up exercises that I could do comfortably. The high knee jogging, an exercise called the rocking horse, and the exercises that required jumping I did not do. The instructor noticed I was walking rather than running/jogging and gave me alternative exercises that I could do with my arms to increase my heart rate.

So, the sesssion went really well. I look forward to going back tomorrow now that I realize that I can take it easy even when it ain't easy.
