I started out dangling too, then worked up to walking laps in the shallow end and doing some deep end work. Eventually, I was able to do less and less in the shallow end, although I still "walked" until I started to spasm. Finally my FP and my rheumy told me to stop that part of my routine (I'm not smart enough to figure it out on my own).

The problem with me swimming laps is: first you have to be able to stay on top of the water. I don't float, I sink like a rock! Our instructor says it's a common problem for tall people. Maybe she was just trying to make me feel better? laugh2

Tomorrow, as with every Monday, my main goal is to make it to PT. Some days just making it into the building is half the battle... If I make it, I will post my time.
