Tuesday, November 21, 2017

My shoulders were a bit achy from days of swimming and reading, so tonight we dusted off the old routine.

15 minutes walking (about a mile)
Weight Room:

  • 32 twisted angels
  • 32 inclined twisted sit ups
  • 24 swimmers presses, 7.5# each hand
  • 16 kettlebell squats, 20#
20 minutes in the sauna.

Life is good.

Playtime at the pool with Vivian was delightful.
Thirty minutes, 900 yards, and then the sauna.

Life is good.

Double take

I'm not going to lie: Tonight I feel a little bit like a badass.
I did indeed skip the hot tub and spent the time in the pool, still swimming, not really meaning to break any records, just hoping that I could keep moving for the whole time.
I swam a half mile before the time was up.
That's right, 880 yards, or twice what I usually do.
I'm pretty certain I'm going to feel it in my arms before this time next week, but that's not going to stop me from going back tomorrow.
And the next day.
And the day after that, too.

I'll let you know how it goes.
Oh, and I did twenty minutes in the sauna too.
What an amazing evening at the gym.


I'm not sure which was worse for my fitness baseline: the office job or chronic fatigue.
Actually, I think the office job wins out.

Swim: 440 yards
Hot tub
Sauna: 15 minutes

After the gym, we came home to our routine of dinner and cards. There was fish and roasted root vegetables, a perfectly autumnal offering of food.

We watched the penultimate episode of The Five, and then we were both tired enough to call it a night. We were asleep before 8:30.

The routine continues to hold me.

I missed the pool yesterday, even though walking around the University of Richmond was its own special delight.

Walked over three miles checking out exhibits and the library in Richmond.
I miss the pool.
