Is This Really Me?
Tuesday, February 28, 2012
I swam an hour today and then took the dog for a 1/2 mile walk. The dog is really getting spoiled with these walks. I've been taking her for a walk every day now, 1/2 mile is the best I can do, but I still have to shake my head and think "Is this really me?" (I actually did a half mile twice yesterday with her.) This is the person that couldn't walk out to the gate without huffing and puffing. Had to use a walker to go anywhere further. Had a hard time walking around the house. Now I swim 3 to 4 times a week and walk the dog every day... not bad, not bad. Hoping to improve the mileage, but I'm pretty happy with what it is for now.
I bought a new pair of swim goggles today. Boy what a difference a good pair makes. I had a cheepie pair that I bought ($2.00--yeah really cheap) and while they worked, they weren't very comfortable, and they also fogged up every lap. The pair I bought today cost $20, sort of mid-range cost, but oh man... so much more comfortable and didn't fog up ONCE during the entire hour. I love them.
