Well yesterday morning I went to the health club for a swim, nothing dangerous in that. Well not if you CAN swim! After a respectable 30 lengths a stream of women started getting in the pool, it was like swimming in the channel with enough waves to wet the top of your head. Annoying but NOT dangerous! Then a lady pushing a trolley walked down the side of the pool and all became apparent, it was a aqua aerobics class. Well I pondered and rose to the challenge... Yes she said, of course you can join us. So after getting my foam dumbbells I followed her lead, it was quite difficult but I tried. Then came the rocking horse manoeuvre, hard to describe... you force the dumbbells under the water and use the buoyancy to lift your legs and rock back and forth - not easy. Anyway, here comes the dangerous bit... I lost my grip and the dumbbell shot out of the water just at the point I was rocking forward and smacked me square on the nose and bust it! Well the commotion that followed is not something I would want to repeat in a hurry but once the bleeding had stopped I had a good old laugh. Talk about an icebreaker! Anyway I left with the other ladies shouting see you next week Rudolph... charming!
