So last night after Terence got home from work and before he had his squash game I went out for my run / walk session. It's been a while. With Funrazor planning and my injury I've simply not had the opportunity to go out and do anything. Okay I also had permission from the physio to "rest" my leg so that was all fine. But now I need to start getting back into it. So the physio basically wants me to gradually get back into it. So a mix of walking and running. And so that's what I did. Oh my goodness! It was hard work. I am incredibly unfit at the moment. I felt half-dead by the time I got back home.
Tonight I had a swim lesson. I was recently given 10 free lessons and so my friend Rose and I went to the lesson. She went last week, but because of Funrazor I couldn't do last week and it had to wait until tonight.
Of course this meant that I had to visit the optometrist this morning and thankfully OPSM could see me at very short notice. Because it's been a while since I had my eyes last tested and got contact lenses (which I don't really wear much), I had to get another test. And thankfully no deterioration.
The swim lessons are at the Raumati Swim Club - the same place our girls go every week. To some extend I can help myself in the water, but I have absolutely no technique and this was really obvious when the coach made us do 2 lengths without a break in between. By the end of the session (after she made us do around 18 lengths), I have learned a few things. I still have a long way to go to be able to swim properly, but the tips and techniques she shared were very good! Of course this means that while last night I felt half dead, right now the other half feels dead. :-). Thank goodness for the weekend...
