Monday Strength Workout (40 minutes)

Plus, working on my car for an hour yesterday and two hours of bowling Saturday. I was pretty sore from the weekend, so today's workout just felt like punishment.

Saturday Swimming (48 minutes)

I swam a mile (35 laps). I was slower because I did 8 back stroke laps instead of 5. I also wore a knee brace for the first 25 laps or so, and then took it off for the last 10 laps.

Thursday Swimming (30 minutes)

22 laps. I used a knee brace to help with the knee pain I had while swimming last week. It helped hold off the pain longer, but still started hurting around lap 17 or 18. I will keep using the brace during swimming until the knee gets all better.

Thursday Swimming (30 minutes)

Plus 1 hour of mowing and 1 hour playing on the trampoline with the kids. My knee felt better on the trampoline than the last time I played on it, but still not 100%. Praying for knee problems to go away!
