I've been wanting to to become a regular swimmer, so the timing was good motivation to get to the pool. The indoor pool at the fitness center has 25 meter lap lanes and I went with a goal of swimming for 20 minutes. I read somewhere that a beginner swimmer should swim for at least 20 minutes 10 times over a three week period before trying a workout. So, that's my goal.
My other workouts focused on strength training. I haven't been wanting to go to classes, like Bodypump, lately because I'm in the mood to be on my own schedule. So, I dug out an old arm workout that is quick and dirty ---> which means easy to do (at home or at the fitness center). I tried to find a similar one for a leg workout, but instead ended up making my own.
Swimming humbled me and strength training made my legs really, really sore.
