and all in one day too!

February 21 should be a date to go down in, well if not infamy, my personal history anyway. After months of declaring I would get more active I decide to do it all in one day emoticon emoticon

But let me start a little further back in time, about three weeks ago I found myself in a Walking Company store and Al persuaded me to try their foot imaging process. The clerk immediately returned with these inserts and between her and Al I reluctantly purchased them thinking it was a load of HOOEY. I am ecstatic to say it was me that was full of Hooey. For the first time in months my feet don't hurt! And that brings me back to yesterday.

After waiting weeks for the weather to warm up enough, I began my day in the pool to try out my new White Tiger Yoga Tropical Water Fitness gloves and program. I worked through the exercises and was pleased at how I could feel the water resistance working. It took about 1/2 hour so I got in a couple of laps swimming as well to bring it to a total of 45 minutes. I felt great, renewed.

Then the friends we had recently met brought us to the Pickleball Court. If you have never played this sport (it is brand new to me) here is a link We were having so much fun, and our friends were in such good shape Al and I were reluctant to admit we were tiring. Eventually, after an hour, we did and then Jean offered to hit some tennis balls to me as I had foolishly agreed to learning that sport a couple of days before. By the time Al and I cried a serious Uncle, we had been going for a good 50 minutes!

So, in the evening I was popping Advil and Al (who had played a round of golf in the morning) dragged himself to the hot tub.

Yes, I hurt but this time in a good way. I should only have twinges by Tuesday when our friends want to meet us on the court again!

    I must say I did take a look to see what this was ... sounded naughty !! emoticon

    Looks like it would be a lot of fun but tiring given it seems you would be moving like mad on that sized court.

    Wow! I'm very impressed!

    I live in England and have never heard of the gloves so I just had a quick look online and they look really good. I can't find them to buy in the UK though. Guess I'll have to stay out of the pool! lol

    Well done You!

    Those must be great friends because they understand what you are trying to do and put you to the test a little bit. You will all win in the long run!
