I’ve been doing aqua therapy for my back & it REALLY makes me miss the pool.
When i was training for triathlons, i was in the pool 3 times a week. It made for alot of early mornings & really late nights. But that’s where i felt confident…in the pool.
I ALWAYS got compliments from other swimmers. The older ladies that were there for water aerobics always said something to me. “Wow, you were swimming non-stop, how far did you go?”, “i could never do that”, “You sure swim fast”.
One time i swam 2.4 miles (the length you swim in a full Ironman) in the pool just to see if i could do it. It took me about 90 min.
I would LOVE to get back to swimming on a regular basis again, but it’s just not in the cards right now. At the local county recreation center, it costs $5 admission every time you go & the yearly membership is about $300. Unfortunately i just can’t afford it right now. Maybe after my husband gets back to work, since he works for another county, tgey offer him a discounted rate for a membership & they offer a payroll deduction too. Then, maybe i can get back in the pool.
Have you ever done aqua therapy? (It’s kicking my butt.)
