Sporty Em is BACK!

I've been out in my Quickie wheeling around every day this month!

I know it's only the 6th but that's still a good thing.  Only relatively short distances but longer ones will come.  I'm just pleased about the daily thing and I'm really enjoying it too.  I used to be really really active and sporty and I haven't been for years.  I like that Sporty Em is coming back.

My mum doesn't want me wheeling myself anywhere near any roads because she thinks it's too dangerous.  We had a silly argument about that.  Yet when I told her that I had a crazy conversation with someone about us maybe doing a half marathon next year she thought it was a great idea.

She really confuses me at times.

Actually she really confuses me a lot of the time.

I'm hoping to get a cyclometer fitted on my chair either tomorrow or Saturday and then to do some longer distances over the weekend.

Also went swimming on Tues with Mum.  I swam 16 lengths (same as last week) and I also walked 4 lengths (didn't do any last week).  But this time I swam them faster and with fewer breaks to rest.  The contrast between being with Mum and going to the disabled session on a Friday with RCV was huge.  She was pushing me to do more, go faster, not take a break.  At with RCV it's very much them trying to get me to stop, take it easy and warning me not to over do it.  That really frustrates me and I don't agree with it.  I do understand why they do it.  But I don't agree.

I'm thinking mum doesnt want you to get run over(could be messy to say the least) hence the busy roads bit, but she does agree with getting fit and healthy (better to be fat and fit than skinny and unfit according to one of our lecturers) and getting out and about a bit more and the challenge of a half marathon.
