I’m feeling better today. My panic attack of yesterday has passed and I’m getting it together.
At least for the moment.
Last night I went to do laps as I’ve done the last few weeks. This time my girlfriend couldn’t go, so I was on my own. I think that might have been a good thing because there was less chit chat. Not that chit chat is a bad thing, but I do believe I did AL LOT more laps last night! I lost track, but I did a lot.
I also think that I might finally be getting the hang of this swimming thing. Not that you could tell from looking at me, but I know I’m making progress. With each stroke, I just kept counting. One, two, three, breathe. Arms extending. Trying to make it look as effortless as those who’ve been to the rodeo before. Just kept saying to myself, “head down, arms extended forward, bend arms, swivel hips, turn head, do not pull head out of the water. Who knew there was such much thought that went into swimming. Not me! I’m looking forward to next week when the mentors will be on deck to give pointers as I think I’m getting it, but who knows. I could be getting it all wrong:)
Then today, I did get in my run. I packed the boys and their bikes up. I met a girlfriend who brought her son, bike, and dog. Then off we went. They all rode around, while I did my couch to 5K plan. I do notice that it is getting easier. Now when I say easier, I don’t mean that I’m not huffing and puffing along because I am! I just mean that (as it is supposed to happen), I can jog farther and faster than I could a month ago. And that is how it is supposed to work. Great program!
So for today, I feel like I might just be able to do this.
Although, I still need to get on a bike!
