Today was a great session! I was aiming for 50 continuous swipes and ended up getting 70. I started my swipes thinking "ok get to 50 and be happy with that number." As I started to swipe I was feeling good when I got to 50 I just kept going. I didn't tell myself to keep going I just did. I started to feel my whole body working as one fluid part and just zoning into the swipes. I think this is some of what "flow" is. I wasn't thinking I almost last track of count a few times because I was just focused on the movements. It really was an amazing experience. The muscles in my thumbs were on fire along with my four arms. I finally stopped myself at 70. I am very happy with that number and I don't think I am too far off from achieving my goal of 100.

I dropped off Charlie at the vets this morning for his surgery. poor guy I felt bad taking him but it has to be done. I will be picking him at at 4:30 today. I got him a toy as a get well gift, silly I know but he is like my son. It was not the same working out in the basement without him laying there watching me as I torture myself lol.
