I had tried wrapping my head around her working while I was swimming, and with the opening the new pool in Farmers Branch, I finally did.
They have an indoor lap pool and therapy pool. It's wonderful. She sits in a cage outside the pool. The first few days she had trouble scenting me -- I could tell because she would whine and even howl. I would stop by her cage and talk to her. It only took a few days to figure it out.
I've even been able to do water aerobics -- really fun, but way to structured for me -- especially timing right now in my life.
My routine right now, is to do some Johns Hopkins work, do some housework, then go to Planet Fitness for strength and cardio, then the pool. The pool is just a couple of blocks from Planet Fitness.
