I am trying something new with water aerobics. Previously, I was trying to attend two classes a week: one on Saturday morning and the other on Wednesday mornings. I was taking Wednesday mornings off from work (as part of a mandatory time off program), but it was very difficult to balance going to class and then getting ready for work. So, I have decided to make my own class. I have been doing water aerobics long enough to know the proper way to exercise and fill in the time. I have "gone to class" twice now and it is working out well. I wrote up four classes to use as a guide while I am out there. It really helps to have a routine written out prior to jumping in the pool. It keeps me on track and moving the whole time I am in the water.
I find this time in the pool to be very peaceful. Because it is winter and I am in an outdoor pool, there is not a lot of other activity going on out at the pool. I am really enjoying the quite time, working out, being in the warm water. Also, because I am going after work, I am in the pool at sunset. The scenery is beautiful: not dark, not light. Love it. I am excited that this idea is working out!
