I Am A Pool Addict!
Wednesday, August 05, 2009
Oh how I love the water, I’ve always loved the water, I like finishing, I love to go to the beach, and it’s just a wonderful relaxing place to be. Now that I’ve committed to learn to swim I have fallen in love with the water all over again. I just can’t seem to stay away from the pool. Oh my goodness, I can’t wait until morning to go back again, I am so addicted.
Okay, my goal was to learn how to swim. Well my daughter taught me how to float in one day that was about 2 ½ weeks ago. Well let’s just say that I feel like I am a master of floating, both on my stomach and on my back. My formal swim lesson should start next week, August 10th I think; well I’ve already learned to swim. I am so amazed at myself. Okay, I need much practice, you know like a baby learning to walk, or learning to ride a bike, so I’m in the developing stages, but I feel good. I have something to add to my curriculum of exercise.
So this morning I took the power plunge class, water aerobics for 45 minutes, then I spent an additional 1 ½ hour swimming, floating, playing, just enjoying myself; isn’t fitness wonderful. Okay back to the swim lesson, I was going to forgo the lesson but I decided to get professional help to develop a solid technique, I need to get a mental concept of kicking and breathing, you swimmers know what I mean.
My mother has agreed to go with me on Friday morning; I am once again excited I can’t wait. She has major issue with her needs and the doctor said she needed a knee replacement. I told her the water provides less impact on the joints and allows for more movement and flexibility. I’ll let you guys know how that goes.
Until next time; God Bless!
