Wednesday, Thursday and Today

Just so it's not forgotten, I have still been walking Bronx several times a week, at least three and more often more than that, anywhere from 1/2 hour to an hour. 
Wednesday I swam about 45 minutes.  17 laps, so almost a half a mile.  The first 1/2 hour was continuous, no breaks whatsoever.  My instructor told me when we started to do 2 of each stroke I knew.  When I would come in from my lap, she would hand signal things I needed to work on, but I would not pause to talk or anything.  I accomplished 14 laps that way.  Then we worked on jumping in the deep end and flip kicks again, only this time it was just flipping in the water.  I jumped in until I didn't get water up my nose, and then I did two flips, and the second time I almost didn't get water up my nose.  Just a little.  And no panic attacks this time!  Take THAT!  Ha!
Yesterday I did 1 hour of Zumba.  It was awesome as usual.  The shoes are still making a big difference, so it wasn't a first-time-shiny-new-toy kind of love.
Today all I did was walk Bronx for an hour.  Started my girly time so I'm a little more tired today.  We'll see how I feel tomorrow, but I plan on getting something in even if it's not a super hardcore workout.

Woohoo for no panic attacks! I definitely think flip kicks are a hard skill to learn, and I would not beat myself up about them.
