Swimming has been my first love over the years. More than running, more than tennis. There I said it. Given that, I don't know why I go for so long without diving in and doing some laps. Maybe it is the orange tint it gives my hair or the goggle marks that stay with me all morning. Perhaps it is the dry skin. Wait, I said I loved swimming, right?
There is nothing better than cruising along the length of the pool following that black line, getting to the end and doing a little flip turn just because you can and because it is kind of fun. Seriously, swimming is the best all over workout I have found.
Oh, it can be boring if you don't have people to swim with or a masters group. If you swim on your own, I HIGHLY recommended checking out swimplan.com. The site is free and gives you workouts created to your specifications. Love it!
6x100 (75 free, 25 kick)
4x100 free with fins

1x100 cool down
It broke things up from a boring straight 2000 swim. The hour was up before I knew it! Check out swimplan, pick a lane and start swimming!
