See ya later, Alligat….

with one comment

I was toying with the idea of not going gymming today. My muscles are still pretty strained. But eventually I decided I’d better go. I got into the pool very gingerly, and swam the first 10 lengths hardly moving my legs. I was the only one in the pool and I was hardly rippling the water. I felt all stealthy, like an alligator up to no good, my nostrils just skimming the surface.

When I thought the whole works were sufficiently warmed up, I started swimming normally, and did a further 22 lengths. I’ve been walking very carefully since, and so far so good. The muscles are feeling better and the joint is officially in its socket! Yay!! Long may it stay that way.

I have learnt a thing or two from the yogalates, and one of them is that strong core muscles support one’s back. So as of today, I’m making sure my abs take some of the strain that my lower back has been taking. Also concentrating on my posture, and on not walking like a duck. That should help things along greatly…

We are having fantastic rains here. I’m feeling very guilty being online while there is lightning, though. Everytime it strikes, I cringe. It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve lost a modem like that, I’d better get off. It was on tv a while ago that SA has far and away the most strikes (as in lightning strikes) in the world. I think one even has to take out special ‘lightning’ insurance for modems/ decoders etc, as the regular insurance doesn’t cover it. Everyone has a my-modem-got-struck-by-lightning story.
