I finally found my way to the outdoor gym that is quite near my house. It is quite a nice one and I had a good workout. I now have two types of exercise that i enjoy, swimming and this kind of obstacle-course-ish thing.

I also went to the opticians. My eyes are apparently quite out of sync. I then had a migraine for two and a half days. I have an appointment tomorrow with someone who is more specialized in the problem that I have. So hopefully things will get solved soon, because I read a lot and use computers a lot and getting constant headaches is not fun.

Do you lap swim in a pool? I'm going to try to start swimming laps this weekend. I'm intimidated at trying something new in a public setting, but I really want to do it.

Yes, and I really like it. It is quite relaxing, you don't have to keep track of sets or exercises (if you don't want to). It trains the whole body without much effort, and just the feeling of weightlessness in the water is nice.

People who swim laps at the pool range from people doing breaststroke with their head above the water to ex-competitive swimmers. So you'll probably not be out of place.
