I got a Samsung watch for my birthday in 2019, I really liked it. The display started flickering about May of this year. I went and bought another one, the Samsung Galaxy watch 2. The display on this one flickered after the warranty expired and a day.
I’m taking them to the cell phone repair place, I’m going to ask if they can be repaired. In the meantime I’ve got my old Garmin Vivosport back on.
It’s another day off Friday for me! I don’t have any plans except to drink this cuppa coffee. Maybe beach today.
I’ve been swimming the half mile almost every day at lunch time. Once this week, I finished my swim and got out of the water and saw a girl swimming pretty close behind me. She swam on by as I got out and walked to the shower. While I was rinsing off I saw her walking down the beach towards the start of the half mile. She had her goggles and I knew she was a fellow swimmer practicing for the races.
She was about 25 meters ahead of me, walking down the beach. She started to walk past the beginning of the half mile and I thought “Dang, she must have swam the mile instead of the half mile.” As soon as I had the thought, she she got back in the water and began swimming the half mile again. At least twice.
I want to try that now, swim the half mile, walk back to the beginning, and swim it again.
I believe I’ve discovered a way to decrease the time I spend walking in the mornings. Without decreasing the distance walked. I’ll show you: go on, get up and walk. Now walk faster, faster still, a little bit faster, faster! That’s pretty good!
I believe the term that I should use for this faster walking will be “running”.
I shall get it to patented and copyrighted and I shall be rich for my invention!
Seriously though, it’s Wednesday, I slept good last night, I feel good now, I’m ready to go to work. I plan on swimming in half mile at lunch time like I did yesterday.
It was a nice weekend. Friday was “Eat Poorly” day. I had dinner at Burger King and paid for it later. I felt bad all night and most of the day Saturday.
Saturday morning I went scuba diving with some friends and still have the pictures to be sorted. That’s why there’s no underwater pictures here today. Sunday was a 5K walk/run. It was related to this month being recovery month in the Cayman Islands. Afterwards a group of us went out for coffee.
Sunday afternoon I was invited to a small party at Smiths Cove and I went to that and it was quite nice.
It was a good weekend, it seemed like a long weekend, and it was a good break before going back to work today.
Here’s a couple of pictures, one I took yesterday at my beach lunch and the other from this mornings dawg walk.
There used to be rock going across what looks like a channel in the pic above. It’s on this blog somewhere but I can’t find it now. I took this pic while I was sitting in the shade, reading my book.
Above is where I walk the dogs every day. The view isn’t special when I walking in that direction, but I always try to look back when I’m on the way back home, it seems much better then. I don’t know why.
I finished another workout app. The 1st one I don’t remember the name of. I could probably find it if I wanted to look but, nah
The 30 day programs seem to have three 30 day programs in them
Above is the one I finished yesterday. I finished the 3rd month/program yesterday. Today I had no choice but to repeat. I don’t have a six pack. Mostly the exercises were too easy with one hard one thrown in. The last week’s exercises were pretty good though.
So what’s next? I was thinking about a beginner yoga app, (I took one yoga class once and hated it) or flexibility app. I’ve never touched my toes in my life without bending my knees.
This morning I went walking the loop with ankle weights on 10 LBs each. I didn’t run at all. The only thing is, it doesn’t get the heart rate up.
Also I changed my routine slightly. Normally I get up, shave, exercise, make coffee, shower, dress and drink coffee. This morning I got up, exercised, shave, shower, made coffee, dressed then drink coffee. And post. Seemed to work better.
