I swim 3 days a week. It's easy on my joints and my back (I have scoliosis
), if I have a sore knee I mainly do arm swimming, and vice versa. If I'm just plain tired, I just take it slow and easy and relax. It's also good for my lungs, without overdoing my joints.
I love to swim (I was on the swim team when I was a kid), and our local college has an indoor pool that the public can join
. And one day a week I am taking my 2 yr old and she is learning to swim already- I'm getting a workout chasing her in her "floaty suit" around the pool
