Being in that pool is no joke!

Up at 7am and back in the pool at 9am. We only had about 7 women today, so there was lots more room to splash around in. But my body is definitely feeling it now. My knees were hurting during the session. She had us jumping and hopping in the water and my knees just didn't want to do that. So I slowed things down a little bit until she was doing something else that I could do with no pain. I'm glad that I can pretty easily get up early in the morning now, but I know there's a nap coming. It doesn't seem to hurt my sleep at night anymore. I guess now that I'm doing a lot more, my body is more receptive to sleep at a proper time again. So I'm reaping benefits from exercise already, and that's what's keeping me going. I now have the weekend in front of me with no specific plans (at least right now). I do have some reorganization to do in my bedroom and the next few days will be perfect for that. Yesterday, I did take a short nap and when I woke up, I began some of the work in the bedroom since I was feeling so refreshed. So now I can just pick up where I left off. I'm also putting my sweaters away and bringing out clothes for spring and summer. Hope you're having a good Thursday. It's raining again here, but that's not bothering me. It's great weather for some reading and that nap I'm craving so much! Claudia

It's a great schedule for a beginner. Once I can go a few weeks with little pain, I'll add a third day.

It's great exercise. Even though you are lighter in water, your muscles will hurt with over use.

My muscles and joints are all hurting pretty badly right now. But then again, I haven't exercised in a long time, I'm older and I'm over weight. It all adds up to needing time to adjust. And I'll keep going because I know how good it is for me.

Not being an expert, but it sounds like you need some slighly lower intensity until you get your strength up. Even with the water cushion it sounds a bit like hard work

Yes if you can do some excercise of some sort, that is a Plus. I am not able to do much, and then I read and heard somewhere since I am diabetic and even though I have lost a ton of weight, my BS is very high. So I am not able to excercise much. Wishing I could do more.

I heard that exercising in a pool was easier on the body but that's not trure. I almost drowned doing push-ups.

All that pool exercise seems to be working for your sleeping better. Our weather got chilly again today so I am back to wearing warmer clothes while yesterday it was short sleeves

That's good that you're sleeping more at the right times. As you say, the extra moving around might be helping.

You are wise not to do anything that hurts your knees in the pool. we don't do jumping and for a long time it didn't do the squats but now they don't hurt so I do them.
