A few of my friends have done posts reminding us at that despite problems and upsets, there are still so many positive things, so I am going to try a positive post a week.
Yesterday I went to the gym, and my trainer has increased the number of repeats on all my programme! There was one that I reduced the weight for on the last rep as I was struggling, but other than that I managed (just). However what really cheered me up was that I always finish with a swim and jacuzzi. As I was swimming I actually counted the lengths and realised that back in October the first time I went I only swam ... and only managed 4 lengths, a gap, and another 4. Yesterday, after an increased workout, I swam 10 lengths, and actually could probably have done a bit more ... so, great, my stamina is much improved already.
Back to work this afternoon after 6 weeks off. Still coughing, and catching my breath, but I am doing an "ignore and see" ... so for me, that's a positive way forward! Having had a lifetime of chest problems at least my doctor accepts that I will struggle from time to time ... so we are seeing how things go.
And finally, had a great walk with Jiffy this morning. He has been a bit sluggish, which worried me, I put his older jumper on him, and whether it was that, or just he is feeling better, he enjoyed himself ... and it was great walking across frosty land.
Well I must get on, as I need to get an early lunch and change ready for work.
