So, I’ve been trying to move around more this year. I’m trying not to be a total slug. No big deeds, just walking about a mile, doing a few machines when I go to the health club with my husband. My goal is 3x a week. My hubby and I walked about a mile (in the sleet) yesterday. I have visited the pool area of the gym twice.
By that, I mean the first time I walked to the pool area and looked at it from the window. The second time, I actually walked inside the area and looked at it for a half-moment. Then I exited. I have it on good authority that people who swim in this pool occasionally pee in it. Eww. I can honestly say I do not pee in the pool. I physically cannot do it. My Mama taught me to only go in the pot. I have to struggle to go in the ocean! Knowing that others DO pee in the pool doesn’t make me want to put my face in that pool. That said, swimming is great for building stamina. I know this because of the many summers I went swimming as a child at the community pool then came home and needed a nap.
Help me get over my germophobia! How do I force myself to put my face in pee water!!!! Or how do YOU build your stamina?!!
