Hi folks--it's been a couple of months since I posted last. I've been doing the Guai thing with pretty positive results. I've been able to go to the local YMCA most week days for a swim and have really enjoyed it. I've felt an increase in strength and energy that I haven't had in years. I've even begun getting a bit tan! This last week has me a bit discouraged though. I'm experiencing pain in places that I've not had pain before and renewed pain in my hips as well. I'm afraid i may have over done it on the swimming. Mostly I do just a series of light stretches in the water with a bit of easy swimming with swim fins on. I plan to continue swimming but I'm wondering if the swimfins aren't causing me to over extend myself. Or perhaps I'm just going through another layer of healing from the Guai protocal. I've had a few of these but they seem to only last a day or so, then I feel fantastic. I almost began to feel like I could go back to work! Then wham, my whole right side feels like it's been hit by a car!
