Just the simple change in my exercise routine has given me a lot of joy this week. When I first came down I had my hair cut short because I was going to spend a lot of time in the pool. Well...you heard all about our chilly, snowy winter so the idea lost much of its appeal in actuality.
Last weekend I looked at the forecast for the new week and Tah! Dah! we were in for some warm days. So I headed for the pool...
The pool is 75' long and the local authorities say if I swam 72 lengths I would have about a mile. So I walked/jogged/ran for all I was worth (well, maybe not that much) every day and I love it!!!
It was easy to lose count so I got a little lap counter and hit the button after every 2 lengths...then I can think 'deep thoughts' and unravel those 'deep thoughts' as I run. No more having to remember what number I am on.
I do come into a certain amount of teasing from the locals who watch from the hot tub but it feels so good. I used to love jogging so this gives me the same lift without the severe pressure on my right ankle.
For some reason I did think I would no longer feel pain in my ankle if I did this...not true but it isn't worse and I am getting a thorough workout!
For this I am most thankful.
What happened in your week that makes you thankful? Something big or little? It can be something ever so simple, right under your nose to be loved/enjoyed/treasured.
God bless you all and be well.
