I am back on the exercise train! I got back into the pool and made it through four laps before I needed to rest. Not as horrible as I thought, but still a far cry from what I was able to do just a few months ago. I did a total of slow 14 laps with several rests between. I could tell my entire body was weak from lack of exercise. Not only did my lungs tire quickly, but my legs, my arms, my core too. My husband and I worked out four days a week that I am going to swim so I am hoping to get back to my old self soon.
I also got on my bike for the first time since before I was pregnant. I almost had a heart attack after trying to go around the block. I was horrified since our neighborhood is flat and I was riding slowly. It was windy, but I was really struggling. My husband noticed my tire was almost completely flat which is why I was having trouble. So I wasn't as horribly out of shape as I thought. After he filled my tires I was able to ride with ease and got a little exercise in.
I will keep updating my progress to hold myself accountable. My goal is to get back to my mile in the pool by mid-June
