I absolutely love swimming!
I was the kid that never wanted to go home from the pool. The only person that might be a bigger mermaid is my little sister, Emily. My mom would drop us off for hours and even when the pool closed we weren’t ready to go home. I can remember swimming to the middle of the pool because I knew she wouldn’t come in and get me when it was time to go.
There is something so free about floating and swimming the water. In your own thoughts, it feels so wonderful to get a great workout and not feel the impact on your joints.
In high school, I joined the swim team for a few years and even played around with high diving.
This week, I’ve committed to getting back into the fitness game and putting an end to my whining. So, I joined our local pool and am focused on getting 2-3 times a week in the pool for lap swimming. Of course, I can’t just swim laps so I am creating workouts that will not only get the cardio component but a strength piece as well to really maximize my time in the pool.
Get ready for some amazing workouts this summer because I am more motivated than ever!
