It's been a while since I lasted posted and wanted to catch up tonight.
I started swimming again because walking around the neighborhood in Florida at this time of year is just too darn hot. I tried to go slow. Not sure what that even means. I just started swimming around and using my legs and arms and it felt great. I probably swam for around 20 minutes or so.
After a few days I thought, Wow! this is going to be a piece of cake. Wrong! I woke up in the middle of the night and my arms and legs were screaming with pain. Sort of like when you had growing pains as a kid only much stronger and constant. The only relief is to walk around and keep moving my arms.
I finally just took my pain meds (tramadol) even though they keep me awake because I can't take anything else. I can't take aspirin or advil because I break out in hives.
So the night was a short one, and now I am extremely careful to not overdo in the pool, but I will not quit! I will not give into this as long as I can keep moving.
Today was a great day and my pain is manageable again.
Until Next Time :)
