irony

I swim in large part to improve the flexibility of my knees and reduce the pain there. For the first several weeks I was not sure either of these goals would be achieved, but they have been. I walk more easily and with less pain.

However. After swimming I tend to limp. I am a bit fragile. If I swim again the next day my joints stiffen up. Not as much as they did before I began swimming, but I notice it, particularly when I get up the next morning.

If I take a day off swimming, or two, my knees feel better and I can do more without pain.

So. I need to swim to gain this benefit but I only get the benefit when I am having a rest day. Generally speaking. When I was in Las Vegas I did not swim at all all week. I did very well with my knees that whole time.
