Embracing My Inner Dolphin
I’ve been doing water aerobics, but have reached the max in the thirty minute session. I’m able to easily do the numbers for the maximum workout. (Yay, me!)
I’m now going to embrace my inner dolphin and start swimming laps.
This will be me in March. (Thanks to Couch Potato to Ironman for finding the video.)
I grew up swimming and we had a pool while the kids were growing up. The last time I was in a pool to do laps was at least two decades ago. This should be good!
I’m hoping I will be able to complete one lap before rolling over on my back like a hump-belly whale.
Hey, good for you Mark….that is such great exercise, and I’m sure it’s really good for your knee. I can’t remember the last time I was in a swimming pool…YIKES…let alone in a bathing suit. Loved the Mr. Bean video… ~Joy

I suggest water therapy for your knee replacement and look what happens. You turn into Mark Spitz.

@Joy: I highly recommend water aerobics. I did mine at a rehab hospital, but not part of rehab. They are open to the public for a very low fee per session. And it’s the warmest place in town!
@Catch Her: Mark Spitz! this is my new mental image as I am dog paddling through the water. Thanks.
I believe you’ll do fine in the pool (I don’t no about the other swimmers though). Any extra padding you might have about you helps as a floatation device as well so no worries.
And thanks for the MR.Bean video. Forgot all about him.
K2 looks good on you by the way. I took on another theme as well. I have pictures of my family members as a header image.

@Kirk: If there is a tsunami warning from KY, you’ll know I hit the pool.
ANOTHER new theme? I’ll check it out!
