I have been doing strengthing exercises in the pool at the ymca with my caregiver for my knees. I have been at it for a little less than a year. Today, with a support band around my waist and the small of my back and my caregiver at my side, I swam. Really swam. All that exercise has paid off. I did not want to stop but I am glad my caregiver had the final word on it cuz I am really sore tonite. I hope to go back on Thurs.
WhooooHooooo! It is a gentle reminder of what it feels like to learn to walk when your a baby.
I used to be an avid swimmer and even did a lot of scuba diving. It has been a long time due to my knees.
