My work out buddy cancelled on me today...

Thursday, January 17, 2013

She decided not to go because she wasn't feeling well. I on the other hand went and worked out anyway. I walked the river for 30 minutes without stopping and pooped myself out. I wanted to push myself a bit. I then took a rest and walked it for another fifteen or twenty minutes. I then went and swam laps for a bit with my other workout buddy.

I was able to go in the hot tub today because my incision has closed completely. It was nice being able to warm up in the hot tub for a bit. I get pretty cold in the pool sometimes and it is a good thing to get a warm soak afterwords.

I am going back again tomorrow. I am still out of breath quick but the shake's are almost gone. I still am a little weak but overall I have to say that getting back in the pool has really helped. I am feeling a bit better and it is nice to be working out again.

    Congratulations for keeping up when your buddy couldn't go. That means you have already passed the first mental milestone! And your strength will come back. It's not like you had a cold and missed a few workouts, you were majorly ill. So just give it time and keep up the consistency.

    And love that you go into the hot tub. I do not know what I would do without mine!
