Month-End Review, November

Just got back from the pool. Normally, Tuesday belongs to Kate but since my quads and legs, in general, are still tender from this situation, I took it to the water --a fitting choice in more ways than one since I was crabby and teary. I wanted to swim until my arms couldn't move anymore and I wanted to float the length of the pool.

One of the best things that happened this month was a feeling of being in sync while doing the front crawl; the breathing has been better and I worked my way back up to 25 laps.

And, oh, I got back on the treadmill for the first time in ages. It was strange hitting the machines after a long hiatus.

And one of the best things tonight? I feel renewed -- after swimming, floating, taking a hot shower with ginger and bergamot soap and pushing the boundaries of the speed limit.

Here are other things that invigorated me:

10 Minute Solution: Fitness Ball Workouts

  • Ultimate Stretch, 1 x

  • Upper Body, 1 x

  • 10 Minute Solution: Tone Trouble Zones!

  • Stretching, 4 x's

  • Cardio and Muscle Class, 2 x's

    Personal Training With Jackie: Power Circuit Training

  • 15-Minute Upper Body Circuit, 3 x's

  • Personal Training With Jackie: Xtreme Timesaver Training, 2x's

    Raking Leaves, 1 x

    Rock Climbing, 7 x's

    StairMaster, 1 x

    Swimming, 4 x's

    Treadmill, 2 x's

    Walking, 4 x's

    What did you find renewing this month?


    1. glad your freestyle is feeling in sync its awesome when people can drop into that.

    2. midlife_swimmer,

      It felt so good to have that sense of smoothness and I can't wait to get back in the pool; I'm sure you're acquainted with that feeling. :)
