I find lap swimming a good exercise for me. I swam laps before I met Ken. I used to teach swimming and work as a lifeguard. I love water. With a bad knee and previous rotator cuff shoulder problems, it’s a good choice.
I have been inching up the number of laps to avoid injury. And yesterday with the threat of a large storm keeping me home later in the week I pushed to 50 lengths of the pool – 3/4 mile is 48 lengths. I have not done that since the late 80’s – early 90’s. Today no injury, just some stiffness. I am happy!
