20% Of The Laps Completed. A New Year’s Update.

Happy New Year everyone!! I finished off 2017 by hitting the 2,000 lap milestone mid December.  I am currently sitting at 2,111 laps, and it feels incredible.  Despite the fatigue I was experiencing after the North York Gators Pentathlon, I was still able to enjoy the water at a significantly slower pace.  I wasn’t able…

1,444 Laps Strong!

It is a pretty amazing feeling to see the lap counts keep going up. A few months ago 10,000 laps was just a dream and now I’m approaching the 2,000 laps milestone!! I know I can do this. I can feel it. All I have to do is focus on it. See you in the…

First Flare Up In 8 Months

It has officially been 4 weeks of being botox free (yay!), which feels incredibly different from what I’m used to.  Muscles that were once ‘numbed’ are active again after 3 years in a good way and a bit challenging for me in other ways. At dryland last Sunday, we did a circuit with some pretty neat…

1,188 Laps Strong!

My little Sophia was feeling much better and wanted join me as my lap counter this morning.  It felt so good to be in the water after a week and a half! To make my swim fun, I did 15 x 100m IM (I think this proved that I missed the pool!) This pushes me…

Spasm Free Stress!

Earlier in the month, my neurologist gave me a pat on the back for being able to manage my dystonia symptoms with my holistic approach, focusing on nutrition, managing stress levels, as well as going to physiotherapy, and massage therapy.  We decided that I would not get my botox injections and I was to continue…

Working Out & Having Fun

I just had to share how amped I am that I completed today’s dryland training. I haven’t done any weight training or circuit training since even before my diagnosis.  In fact, the last time I did anything of the sort, I was still in high school working out with my brothers.  Immediately my mind began…

The Body Doesn’t Create The Mind, The Mind Creates The Body.

Like plenty of people out there, my life can be incredibly chaotic at times and the only place I want to be is under the water. It’s the one place I know I can be alone with my thoughts and my emotions, free from distractions.  There are many articles out there (science based and otherwise)…
