I am back in action with a work out/ eating better routine. I posted about trying Barre Class a while back and really loved that workout. However, I wanted to be able to try more classes with more schedule options so I decided to join my local YMCA.
I tried Yoga Fusion the other day and loved it! Today I wanted to explore the pool. So I ran a few miles on the treadmill and headed to the pool.
I have always been a water lover; I was on swim team and a lifeguard [Shout out to my Trails Pool Sharks]. However, I haven’t swam laps in probably close to 8 or 9 years. It was back in college and I definitely didn’t do it on a regular basis. So I busted out the speedo I wore on swim team [AKA vintage speedo because it is 15+ years old] and my goggles and I was ready to go.
Side note: why are speedo’s so funny looking on my body.
In my head I was going to swim a mile [32 laps at the YMCA]. And then I jump in and swam ONE lap and thought HOLY &%$@ this is WAY harder then I remember! Where are some floaties when I need them??!?!!
However, I took my time and did 16 laps and felt good about myself. This has definitely shown me how I need to adjust expectations but also push myself. I am enjoying trying new classes and getting back into old fitness habits!
