Swimming improvement

We went to the gym again yesterday. My husband and I swam while the kids played at the play area. This makes the third time I’ve gone swimming this week. Wednesday I swam 10 laps in 15 minutes after water aerobics. That was a personal best. Friday, I swam and a woman gave me some tips on improving my technique and breathing. I tried them today and they helped. I did about 15 laps and 2 more with the kickboard for a total of 17.

I don’t feel like I’m just thrashing around getting down the pool anymore. I really feel I’m improving. It’s great exercise. I have to rest a minutes or so every 1 or 2 laps but that’s ok.

The scale seemed to appreciate the change of exercise. I’m back down under 166 again.

  4. Thanks. The scale is moving down again. I’ve lost a pound and half this week. I’m still unsure about meeting this month’s goal but haven’t given up.
