I joined a gym recently, to give me something else to do besides running. Especially with my achilles being tender and sore, it’s important that I cross train.
One of the great things about this gym is they have a pool! Yes, a wonderful, big, clean heated pool. When I went tonight, I did an hour of yoga on my own and then jumped in the pool. It was the best.
I have met people recently who don’t know how to swim. I am so grateful to my mom and dad for teaching me and for putting me in swimming lessons. I honestly don’t remember the last time I swam freestyle or breast stroke but tonight it was just like riding a bike. It felt great. Better even, after an hour of yoga.
This has been a trying week. And, on top of it all, the leg is not healing as I would like. But it feels great after 20 minutes in the pool. Tip: If you have one nearby, get in it! Especially if you are dealing with injuries.
After my yoga and my swim and some delicious healthy take-out and a glass of wine, I can honestly say, despite the events of this week: All is well with the world.
See? Buddha was right. Things are always changing.
