It seems I am a grandmother. Which may sound odd to read seeing as I’m 31, and don’t have kids. Based on some good suggestions from fellow bloggers, I started looking into water exercise classes.
Obviously my fitness level isn’t great after spending the last year with a low iron then tonsillitis ending in the big snip. My energy is returning decently and on work days I do what I deem a respectable 6-7k steps.
(I know the 10k steps thing is talked about almost too much, but I’m not a numbers gal, I’m a “hey cool I’m walking more most days” gal. I don’t walk in circles to finish hitting a goal each day. Also my phone is my step counter so my step count depends if I pick it up when I walk! Sorry, numbers are a personal bug bear of mine so I have to say this stuff when I start talking numbers.)
Anyway, back to being a grandmother! I am in no super hurry to run a marathon tomorrow so when looking for exercise I thought I’d look at whatever the “easiest” water class is on offer. Only they are all, all bloody all, in the middle of the day. You know, when I work. So I’m assuming they are targeted at retired people and therefore people who work full time can only do more high impact exercise.
It made me a bit cranky, honestly. Mostly because when I looked into hydrotherapy for my bursitis … guess what? All the sessions were in the middle of the bloody day.
So basically my quest for a “thing” to do is ongoing. We do have a standing bike ..uh.. thing? Adapter? But nowhere to keep it set up in the house. And there’s no way I’m setting it up each day cos that’s just a PITA.
