You gotta swim.



I've been learning that I really enjoy swimming as a form of exercise. It makes me happy, protects my joints, and has helped my back quite a bit ever since my car accident. I like gliding through the water, and after enough laps, truly feel strong.

My favorite part is when I'm one of the only people in the pool. Last night was the perfect example. I happened to get there during a lull, and had the entire "leisure pool" to myself. I'm a wuss, so this was absolutely awesome. (As opposed to the lap pool, which is always colder.)

I was just getting to about halfway through my normal routine when a few more people showed up. Not a big deal, I'll move over a bit and we'll all have plenty of room.

Then an entire family came. And another one. All of a sudden it was kid hour; mind you, this was around 9:00pm on a Monday night. Don't kids need sleep?

I was still fine with this until a mother was putting a life jacket on her son. He kept saying "Mommy, I need to go potty!" Her solution to his problem was by scooping up her son and throwing him into the water.

I hadn't moved that fast the entire workout.

I'll brave the adult lap pool next time.

What have you been doing to stay in shape? Any new workouts I should try?

  1. OMG I just read this post and am still dying about the mother's solution to her child's potty issue. WOW can't get that image out of my head or the thought of you frantically removing yourself from the situation!! Hahaha
