Yes, it has been almost a week. A week in which not much has happened. Last Thursday the headache had come back, on Friday it was still lingering and during the weekend I unpacked box after box after box. So I did get a bit of training in. Ahem...
Last night however, it was back to training. Swimming training! And not just any swimming either: a huge bunch of people swimming. Like a pack of piranhas eating a zebra. I got my own personal co-swimmer though. Since I am not that strong yet. And half way through the first lap, I got a personal buoy as well, since I was doing pretty badly at that point. To hang on to just in case.
But, eventually I did better than last week. I managed to get my whole head under water (instead of just my nose) and I noticed it immediately in my back and neck. Because my body was flatter in the water, the friction was less and I was able to swim a bit faster. Still nowhere near the speed everybody else has, but I can practice.
Tomorrow will be another swim training, and possibly Thursday as well. The rest of the week I have to figure out for myself. Which I must admit I find quite hard. The telly is very tempting!! I am however already starting to see differences. Or rather feeling them. It's easier to stay in a higher gear. My clothes are a bit looser (even though not a single gram has been lost so far) and the only thing left to clear up now is the wheezing and whistling when I am short of breath.
