And so I decided to join my daughter in her swimming lessons. It was my plan to learn how to swim for a long time now and ever since my ortho told me that I need to exercise because I have a big chance of having my bones be broken again I cannot help but think of a way to prevent my bone from destruction. In order to stop that and to strengthen my bones, I need to find a way to exercise. Unfortunately, the treadmill in the house is not enough for me to get up and do some minutes on it. I am really that lazy. And since many say that swimming is a good form of exercise and a better way to strenghten my operated knee and Phil Younghusband’s injury and rehab gave me an idea .
And I was right. On just my first day, I already want to quit. Aside from fear of the effects of the sun on me, despite using a lot of sunblock and using one of my nike sunglasses , I know the sun would cause a lupus flare. After my first lesson, I feel sore all over. I wanted to spend my day in bed already. But since I already paid in full I have to get up and have another session. I wish I have the boundless energy of my little girl. Yet, despite the hesitation I am happy because I feel the difference in my leg. Today, I was able to walk on the pool without any help. That’s a big feat for me because I am scared of the water and the current is too strong but I was able to walk. Hurray! Hurray!
