Pic a Day in May: Day 30

Jim of Jim’s Stuff started the “Pic a Day in May” challenge last year. I did it last year, and felt like I’d do it again this year.

Day 30. Another long day of poking clients. But I managed to close the studio in time to get to the gym tonight. You know, that place I hate.

However, there is one thing I like to do. If I can have the area to myself…


Mine. All mine. Apparently going to the gym late at night has some advantages. Like no one using the pool.

I like to be in the water. I feel better when I’m in the water. At least water where I can see the bottom and know there’s no big sea creatures coming to get me.

I only swam for about 20 minutes, but that’s 20 minutes more than my body is used to.

And then I made it home just in time for the tornado sirens to go off as a nasty storm front rolled through. No tornado here. But a lot of lightning, thunder, and wind damage from what I can hear. I guess I’ll know in the morning when the sun comes up.

Until next time...

  1. I used to swim laps and loved it. I learned from one of my employees, a DIV ! Swimmer, that you should keep a water bottle at the end of your lane and drink lots of water. You don’t realize how much you sweat and get dehydrated when you swim. Having the water will really improve your endurance and workout.

  2. It’s good to get some sort of exercise, no matter what it is, and swimming is supposed to be one of the best. I’ve had to drop the gym because of a bulging disc in my spine. The doctor said the machines are no good for me but the disc was pushed back in place by physical therapy exercises. I have to fine some other way to keep muscles toned now.

    1. I’ve never been an “exercise” person, so this is definitely a challenge for me to find something I somewhat like to do that won’t be hard on my body over time either. Hopefully you can find what works for you!
