Back in the Water - Yea!

Friday, February 27, 2009

Today I went to water aerobics class. I have eagerly awaited this day for 7-8 weeks - since I first injured my right foot. First, I warmed up with an 11 minute ride on the stationary bike. Then I got into the water. I was able to do a 50 minute class by modifying a lot of the exercises. If the exercises called for jumping around I marched in place or did the movement by treading water. I don't want to go jumping around too soon and damage my tendons, ligaments and muscles, which have been in a boot for 5 weeks. Doing the routines like I was in deep water kept my feet off the bottom and prevented me from bouncing. I wore water shoes that have thick sole and padding inside. It felt so good to be back in the water. I'm tired but happy. emoticon

Have a great weekend friends! emoticon
