Day of Rest
Sunday, August 23, 2020
It's Sunday, my day of rest from everything. No housework, no exercise, no errands. My son usually comes to visit with his fiance. They're vegans, so it works out great. Instead of meatless Monday, we have meatless Sunday.
Well, we decided to go to the pool for a quick dip before they came. (Because of the coronavirus we aren't allowed to have guests in the pool.) So I decided to do laps. I have never done laps. I take that back. Once I did them for about 5 minutes and thought I was going die, or at the very least, my arms and legs would fall off. Today I did them for 25 minutes straight. No stopping, no resting, just 25 minutes of continued swimming.
My arms are yelling at me, but it's a good yell. It felt great! I feel great! I guess all the strength training and water aerobics I'm doing is paying off. I thought I would only be able to last for 5 minutes, but I felt great after 5 minutes kept going for another 5 and then another. It looks like I have a new exercise to do.
So much for my day of rest.
