I love swimming. I could stay in the pool all day.
I am a Pisces after all.
Especially swimming under water feels like mediation to me.
But since I started using a continuous glucose monitoring system and an insulin pump, I stopped swimming.
I had a few incidents that made me consider retiring from swimming.
As part of project food as fuel, I started to look into the types of workout that I typically enjoy.
#1 is and always will be walking - by myself or in the company of people I enjoy talking to.
#3 table tennis.
I walk and play table tennis regularly.
I wondered about swimming.
I remember how I used to look forward to it at the gym.
I decided to see what other people with gadgets do.
I asked a question to Dexcome G5/G6 facebook group asking if they can swim with their gadgets.
I had 83 same-day responses. Everyone said they swim a lot. Even showed images in the pool with their gadgets. There were a few that swam on a competitive level.
I was both surprised and pleased.
After ten years of not swimming - I am going back to the pool.
Thank you Social Media.
