Short Post: Swim and Sick (Ick)

Yesterday I just felt punk most of the day and then last night I wound up in bed, speaking with a client, shivering with my laptop on my lap! Oy! By about 4:00 a.m. I had lymph nodes like golf balls – but I explained to my body that HEALTH was where it was at (and a heavy dose of TheraFlu). I went to a seminar I had to attend (that started at 7:00 a.m., an hour’s drive away – oy!), and brought my Swim stuff.  By the end, I felt well “enough” to be able to do the “level 1” Swim workout. I am glad that I did it – it was 1600 yards – and I didn’t push it that hard, but did it well within the time allotted. I really worked on my ‘catch’ and the first part of my stroke. I also worked on the very end of the stroke and “pushing” the water all the way through (to the point of being sure that my thumb grazed my thigh, and my palm was backward, “pushing”).

I’m not getting any faster, but I do feel like I’m getting stronger. My left shoulder didn’t give me any issues today. Of course, tomorrow is Pole Class, so that might all change in an instant! (smile) I have really been trying to do tricks with my non-dominant (Right) side, because the Left has been playing up  for so long.  Heck, who am I kidding? I mainly do the abs/floor workout for an hour, and then lie on the floor and watch as everyone learns the new hard tricks. SOME day I’m going to have a bit more energy!!

OK – off to make dinner for the hub. He’s the one who brought the sickness into the house – he’s been feeling ick-ish for about a week. I thought I was strong enough not to ‘catch’ it. But he’s sneaky, that one. (smile)
