...................................... or is it ?????
My sentiments when I woke up this morning and finally decided to brave the heat were "It's just too hot to do anything - maybe later when / if it cools down." and I was sort of OK with that.
A left with his brother to take MIL and niece to the airport and just after he left my trainer popped over with some more information on something that we had discussed at training on Thursday evening. He is a very chatty chap and so we stood in the driveway talking for quite a while. In the meantime A was calling me to say that somehow there had been a mix up and the flight was at 8.25am (according to their tickets which nobody had looked at !!!) and not 11.25am as per their itinerary !!!!! Huge panic stations from them but the boys managed to organise it and they are on the 3pm flight this afternoon !!!
Anyway, I had a dip in the pool and then went out and did some shopping. Bought some new togs and so, of course, had to try them out when I got home (as you do). And then something that my trainer had said to me on Thursday night struck home - I can exercise in the pool !!!!
So this is what I did :
- 10 laps of breaststroke (I ABSOLUTELY HATE water on my face so that is the only stroke I will swim - unless there is a shark chasing me in which case I don't give a rat's bum about water on my face)
- 5 x 30sec running on the spot
- 5 x 30 sec treading water and skulling
- 10 laps of breaststroke
Man, I could feel that my heart rate had definitely increased while I was doing those SO, if I don't get to walk today I won't feel guilty because I know that I have at least done something and pushed my heart rate up for a period during the day.
So, in future when I complain about how it is too hot to exercise please feel free to call me on it because, yes it may be too hot to run but it is never too hot to get into the pool and have a work out in there.
Have the best weekend and take care !
