Hope everyone's feeling happy! Just an update on this week's target of get exercising!
During my last swim challenge my partner became seriously ill, it took an awful lot but whilst he was in hospital I managed to complete my challenge.
Since then I have barely swum since, today I got back on the pool. It was glorious. My joints were great just a little niggle in one shoulder and one ankle. I was a little self conscious due to the extra weight I'm currently carrying but once I got in all that was forgotten.
Before my partner got fell ill I was swimming between 40-70 Lengths of our local 23 m pool. Today I swam just 20-but it's a start right? It felt positive anyway.
I do really well when I have targets, just not so well when I set them myself. I think this is because I know that if I have set the target then the only person i'm letting down is myself. If somebody else sets the target that means I have made a promise to that person.
So my question to you is could you give me a swim target? Something like 'complete X number of lengths next week/month'
This should aid in shedding those lbs!!
