Back in the pool

Back in the pool

I went swimming this morning for the first time in months. It isn’t that I don’t love swimming, because I do. It is difficult to shower and change and do my hair etc. It takes a lot of energy to do all those things and I deplete most of my energy in the pool. Today I knew I wasn’t doing anything other than the pool so I knew it would be a good day.

I swam 52 minutes and 58 lengths according to my Fitbit. I burned 227 calories. Not that any of that matters but I did buy a waterproof Fitbit specifically for when I’m in the pool. I do like to see the results. My goal today was to do an hour but I was tired and starting to get cold. I knew I didn’t hit my goal but I was proud of myself anyway.

I did get my hair straightened a few weeks back which helps maintaining my hair much easier. I can let it dry naturally and it dries straight. It takes away from one more thing I’d need to do after the pool and the shower. I dressed my self in comfy clothes and that’s it for me today. I’m spent but I’m glad I used my energy up in the pool being active. Now I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing with my puppies. Always my favorite pastime.

  1. Wow, you take your swimming seriously! I have a pool at home, but don’t get in there very often. Next summer though, I’m going to try to do a lot more pool time.
    I have MS, and I have troubles sometimes, getting out of the pool, if I do too much swimming, or if I’m feeling fatigued.
