OMGoodness! It's working!
thanks y'all for showing up here and letting me know that stretching my limit was possible.
All of you fruit picking, chicken pen cleaning, with/without dog walking, running, surfing, gym going, KM'ing, yard working.... People ~ you know who you are... You all have given me the certainty that one need not quit moving even though we have illness in our lives.
I'm pretty tired from increasing my laps, but I can feel my body getting stronger, and after I work up to a mile I'm going to add in some SLOW elliptical work.
Today I swam 1,350 yds in 50 minutes.
