Going to the local pool has been great.

About a month ago, Mike (my husband) and I decided to start going to the local parks and recreation department’s pool. Except for the two weeks ago when I had the flu and last week when we went to a comic book convention, we have been going on Saturday morning. I was surprised how it helped my knees, hips, and lower back.

I looked up some water exercises and have been doing them. Check out this site for some good ones – pool exercises. I have even started doing laps back and forth. I am working up the getting into one of the lap lanes. That would a great.

Since we’ve been going, I’ve actually been able to take the stairs at work most days instead of the elevator. I’m proud of my progress and I am looking forward to more health benefits. Stay tuned for updates on how the pool exercises are helping.
