Deep Water Workout

I go to Deep Water Workout, usually twice a week.  I like it a lot.  I love being in the water, it's easy on my joints, it's a great workout, and I get to meet new people.  But sometimes it's a struggle to get through the class.  I drew this journal page chronicling my journey through the 60 minute class.  There always comes a point when I think I absolutely cannot do another minute or another repetition.  I have to tell myself that nobody dies of getting too much exercise, but they die of not getting enough.  And I always make it to the end.  But it's hard enough that I always get to feel a tiny bit proud of myself for sticking it out, and doing my body and my heart some good.

Thanks for sharing this drawing. I reminds me to go back exercising.

Great drawing, I used to do this type of exercise when I first went to the gym and it led me onto harder exercise classes with the same type of feelings of exhaustion and thinking you can't go on. If I do no exercise I go back to the beginning and build it up again, well done for sticking it out, it will get easier and you will get fitter.

What a great illustration! I go to a gym myself, but have heard that water exercise is very easy on the joints. Good for you for sticking with it!

Love your drawing and your message that nobody dies doing exercise but they do if they dont exercise - they may halp me throughout the rest of this year as I continue to maintain my walking regime despite the change in the weather!!
