Swimming

So my brother is on me to post again, and sometimes I wonder how often folks even read this thing. BUT since I love my brother Eddie, and he cares about how I'm doing, I will post something. I hurt my foot and I'm pouting. I can't run until it heals really good. So I've taken up swimming again. This past week I've gone swimming only twice but they were great workouts because I went with my friends who are teenagers. They liked to keep racing and beating me in 25 yard sprints. This isn't something I usually do. I usually just go slowly across the pool completing about 15 laps. Which according to a calorie calculator burns around 200 calories (like running 2 miles would). It makes me feel great. But yesterday I think I did around 12 laps, with a lots of sprint laps thrown in there. I then picked up my son from the YMCA daycare and got him in the pool with us. It was lots of fun introducing him to kicking, blowing bubbles and splashing.

Enough talking. I'm up early so I'm going to head to the gym to lift a few weights before work. Love you bro! Sarah

Sis:

I'm so proud of you. You are finding ways to stay active even when running has been temperarily been taken away from you. You rock. Keep up the good work. I am refocusing as well. Going to be doing 3 P90X workouts per week, on Tues, Thurs, and Sundays I think. I did an hour of yoga yesterday and it was awesome. I gotta get that just after workout feeling back again. It's the best feeling in the world.

Take care, love ya.... Little Bro - Eddie
