Friday night I was looking forward to my usual swim. All day I had been worried about my knee and I was skeptical that I could even swim. So when I got to the pool I was a bit apprehensive. I took it easy and let my body tell me what I could do.
I was able to swim my normal routine for the most part. I started with Freestyle and did that for half a mile. Normally I’d switch to Breast Stroke at that point. It hurt my knee. 🙁 I decided doing a limited swim routine was better than doing nothing, so I switched things up a bit. I grabbed my swimming buoy and swam Freestyle without using my legs.
After swimming my new routine (1.25 miles total) I sat in the hot tub for about 15 minutes. It felt WONDERFUL on my knee. My doctor had recommended I use the hot tub after swimming to help soothe it. It worked. I got to the car and my stomach was growling. I knew I wouldn’t make it home –I was so starving! I always have some snacks in the car “just in case” and I devoured a mini box of Cheerios.
When I walked into the house I saw that Michael had dinner almost ready for me. He also had some snacks and a glass of wine ready for me. The snacks were awesome: garlic and jalapenos stuffed green olives! YUM! I munched on the olives and sipped my wine while I waited for dinner.
