Well my friends you will be happy to hear that I stuck to my swimming for more than a day. On Wednesday I went in for round two even though I had a bit of a headache. How’s that for dedication?! I think the reason I was so eager to go again was despite struggling on day one I actually felt like I looked toned and I was ready to see how much further I could take that.
When I was there I didn’t really manage much more than I had before, I either got an extra length or length and a bit in before I had to bail out. It is definitely my legs that tire out first, even though I stand and walk loads and have no upper arm strength. One of the women I work with has a daughter who is a champion swimmer so I turned to her for a bit of advice on how to get my legs stronger and she said that using a floatie and just propelling myself with my legs was key, that even at her daughter’s stage she still does that, so that may be something I have to look in to, embarrassing as it might be.
One thing that did kinda spur me was that there was a man at least twice if not three times my age there making record time on the lanes. I used to be like that, hopefully some day I will be again.
I also have a nice DISCOUNT CODE for ya’ll. It’s for a company called Memeoirs. In an age when love letters don’t exist, although I still try to send the odd one, Memeoirs can combine all your messages or emails with a certain someone in a certain time period together into a book which can then be kept as a keep sake or given as a gift. That means that you can have all your Facebook messages or your Whatsapp messages from when your boyfriend was courting you combined together in a book. You can always pull that out when he forgets to be romantic and remind him of how gushy he used to be 😉
It would also be a lovely gift for your best friends or for someone’s birthday or wedding, combining all the congratulations messages they have gotten.
The lovely folks over at Memeoirs have given me a discount code to give to all my lovely readers, if you go to the site here, and enter the code 1576DE when ordering you can avail of 10% off.
Let me know how you get on and have a lovely weekend.
