… Perhaps not really marching, but looking at the calendar, I couldn’t resist using the phrase.
I woke up this morning eager to be moving. However, my achy hip is still limiting my ability to move much. But this morning I had plan. I headed to the gym about 8:15 am, walked past all the cardio machines (each one taken), headed downstairs to the locker room. Once there, I stripped off my street clothes, down to the swim suit I had pulled on at home. Then I padded my way to the pool.
The pool wasn’t quite as crowded as the cardio section upstairs. I quietly eased myself down into the heated water (though not THAT heated) and started walking. I kept on walking for the next 20 minutes. Something I have rarely been able to do since the middle of December.
I wouldn’t call it a highly aerobic workout. Not that I could have moved any faster – when you’re neck deep in water the resistance is significant. Not to mention that I was bouyant! Most of the length, my toes were the only thing touching the bottom.
I will have to remember that this is a legitimate rehab option to keep in my bag of tricks.
