Where did they come from? [Jun. 12th, 2008|12:47 pm]
[mood |soresore]

So went to swimming last night. Was less about learning to swim, and more about redoing what we've been taught thus far, partially because our regular teacher Megan wasn't there. Gabriella's not bad, but I tend to think Megan's a better teacher.

So most of what we were doing last night was our basic kicking/sculling/floating. But it was constant. No real catch-your-breath and rest-your-limbs time once we started on the kicking and sculling. Which is fine if you're used to it. None of us are. And getting us to dog-paddle the width of the pool was a killer!

Normally after swimming is done for the night, I hang around for an extra half hour or so going over what we've learned. Last night I crawled straight to the spa and just sat for a quarter hour before crawling to get changed and driving home.

Today I have all these muscles I didn't know existed. I can't see any of them, but by jingo, I can feel 'em! Ow!

So who wants to come over and gently rub my aching limbs?

I get similar things when I go back to the gym after a break. While it's not fun during, it doesn't happen all the time, the more you swim, the less they'll hurt later.

Afraid I'm too far away for more than virtual rubs.

Having grown up in Miami Beach, I'm still vestigially startled when I hear of adults who don't know how to swim. I can certainly understand it if you grow up in a land-locked place but it still tends to surprise me nonetheless. Hope your aches go away soon.

Spa Days

You know, I'd totally forgotten you didn't swim.

Have great memories of various parties in Park Orchards. And the record number of people in the spa. Great times!

-grin- Ah, muscles that just suddenly pop into being and decide to exist in your body. Excellent!

Glad the swimming is going well. And, you know, I *can* swim, and dog-paddling the length of the pool *still* hurts.
