Back in October, when I got the Diabetes Wakeup Call, I got serious about swimming again. Just about every issue I had with loss of flexibility and body aches have gone. I swim an average of five times per week now. The distance I swim is now consistently 2500 meters, over a mile and a half.
The physical liberation and the release from stress and worry go together. Swimming is an emotional liberator. I can feel power and strength in my body.
And it raises a question, why aren’t more people in their 60’s active? I realize many folks have health issues. I guess when we consider the Baby Boomers, more of us are active than those in prior generations.
Anyway, this is more of a ramblethan anything else. I am super glad to be active again.
