I thought that swimming was supposed to be good for us sad I took kids swimming yesterday and thought i would try a couple of breast strokes myself :fish:

My legs felt so heavy in the water and my shoulders were weak :cry:

This morning i feel really stiff and achey as usual :roll: Obviously i have to build it up but it's such a hassle to get into your swimsuit and out again for just a 5 minute swim. :roll:

I really miss exercise so maybe i will persevere as can't do the gym or jogging as i used to :run:

    i miss swimming so much its unreal! I always feel ill in the water and am in pain for days after, Its one of the things i miss the most.

    I think the thing that stops me going swimming on a half good day now is the fact that iv got some love handles the past year and dont feel i could face taking my top

    Yes, I know exactly how you both feel :sadface:

    I've only tried swimming once since being ill and I didn't make it past trying to put my cossie on ...... like you Teedie, I just found the struggle totally exhausting and ended up with straps in quite the wrong place .... so gave it up as a bad job :sadface: Also the smell of the chlorine made me feel really queasy :erm:

    I really do miss the gym ...... on a good day I think 'oh, it won't be long before I am able to go back ..' but I'm just kidding myself. :sadface:

    I was told by my GP that swimming was the best form of excercise and to avoid cardivascular sports! smile

    I too have been swimming once and the price I paid was far too much!
