Very happy today. I drank a lot of pool water, and I would really like to not have to do that, but I’m getting into it. Today I did 1500 yards—- I think. 30 up and down laps. It actually felt like a good workout, and I even felt strong.
My hip was pretty stinkin good yesterday. I have to stop saying great because I’ve been saying that for about 12 weeks. Either way, today is even a little better. And I could do this, you know… I could settle into swimming as an alternative until I can do land activities again. It will really be nice to breathe as heavily as I need and not ingest pool water.
On that note— dizziness?? Is that a normal swimming thing?? It’s not terrible, but I do find I have to stop every now and then and let stuff stop moving.
Doing a little light core stuff today and some weights and calisthenics. Is that still a thing, or was that what people did in the 80s??
Oh, and I even did a good job with my blood sugar today. Auto was pushing me up because that’s what it does, but it didn’t get too crazy. At disconnect time I was a 170. As I was heading into the pool my stomach growled, and I realized I haven’t eaten in like 3 days (my mom is out of commission, and my steady intake of calories has taken a serious hit). I decided to have my applesauce… even though I was already disconnected. Diabetes (and the 670) crack me up sometimes. If I had put money on it, I would’ve bet on a ridiculous high, but I got out of the pool at an 80…
Auto mode is doing its thing now though, and I’m headed skyward so I’m not sure how I got through the workout like I did today, but I’m paying for it now. Was paying for it. I just got out.
I think that’s it. It’s been a good day.
