Pools are Wonderful Inventions

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

The community pool is well into jack hammer Renovations.
Yesterday the Y pool deflated its bubble because of a tornado warning.
I called today, and it was back in business.
When I arrived early, a teenager was leaving the bubble. I asked her how the water was. She said it was nice but it would be better when the bubble came off. I thought it was lovely. Perfect temperature. So I got in 40 minutes of my own brand of workout I do for my legs, then 45 minutes of Aqua Silver class, and ended with 15 minutes of laps since that part of the pool had cleared out.

Right now my shoulders feel like my arms are going to fall off, but my legs feel fantastic and that was the goal.

Aqua Zumba followed by Water Exercise tomorrow night. Zumba in the water is a real trip!! Sends me into gales of laughter. Since I'm dripping wet, you can't see I'm laughing so hard that tears are streaming down my face. The tears actually compete with the sweat. I know, you can't see the sweat either.

Don't know how my legs will survive over the weekend when both pools are closed. You're probably yelling for me to go to the beach. Hey the Gulf is 69 degrees today. I need it quite a bit warmer for my toes to even consider wading at the beach. Both pools are heated to 84 degrees.

The Y will be available again on Monday, but no more bubble keeping the air warm. Not sure if they will continue to heat the water then.

Bubbles are wonderful inventions, too!!

    That sounds like such fun, and very good for you. Except - don't over stress those arms to save your legs. I do hope they are feeling better now. I'm wondering if the bubble top would work here - that could solve the winter pool problem if so.

    I love swimming as well. I would love to take Zumba in the water! I would have to join the Y though and I live 30 min away and it's also too expensive. Oh well.

    We did buy our own pool last year, but I can only swim in the summer. I stretch it out as long as I can, though. I open it in March/April and start swimming as soon as I can. Maybe I can get a bubble for my pool! I'll have to look into it.

    Sounds like you're doing a great job and having fun at the same time. That's a surefire way to stick with it! emoticon emoticon emoticon
