I just finished my second swim lesson. I'm taking swim lessons from Emilie, a superb Instructor from Canada. She is helping me with my conditioning and mobility. Since my total hip replacement my doctor ordered me to do less walking and more swimming.
The lessons with Emilie are one to one in the Cuenca Olympic Pool. The lessons are very reasonable and the pool is practically empty at 10:00 am. I have a lane to myself. Today we were working on strengthening my flutter kick. Admission to the Pool is $1.50 and you can buy a month's pass at a substantial discount.
I am still finding muscles that I haven't used in years but today I felt great and probably could have walked home. Oops almost forgot there is a third pool where the water temp is 105 degrees F. A soak in that felt really great.
