Another chance to swim is good since this is only the second day of the year we have been in the water. Bill is still very nervous, but I think he is gaining confidence so that's good! :)
Again, my focus was on breathing and rotating in the water. I think I did a better job of this today, but had problems taking in water and also with water getting in my ears. I don't know if it was just the day or what was going on, but I also noticed I rotate more on my left side breathing than I do on my right. I'm closer to 90 degree on my left and more like 45 on my right, at least that's how I feel I am doing. I just might need another training session with Mr and Mrs Vardotrichic.
I also woke up this morning, weighed myself for the first time in 2 weeks and discovered that I lost about 6 pounds. This is almost shocking as I really ate a lot of junk food. The last week I tried to eat less and do a plank a day. Last night Rachael started up her core exercises again. Good to start getting back in the swing of things. I hope this momentum lasts!
