Mermaiding it….

I went to the local pool this arvo to check it out. While I am still going to the gym in the mornings, I’ve had to cut seeing the lovely Hugh, my trainer, due to my hamstring. I pulled it ages ago and it refuses to heal and it’s affecting my knee as I am compensating for my hamstring. Such is life. Anyway, when I was on hols I swam a lot and that solved the leg problem – hence the push to be a mermaid. So after work off I went to the pool.

Someone once said of my swimming style ‘it’s not stylish but you’re a strong swimmer.’ Well, who needs style? So I swam and swam and swam. When I wasn’t doing laps I was doing something I always loved to do as a kid. Diving underwater and doing hand stands. May I never grow out of the urge to do that. Is there any fitness benefit for doing hand stands? Nah, but its fun.

I would say being a strong swimmer is a great way to approach life.
