More X-training

Last night I got into the pool for 50 minutes of laps after 30 min of running and a strength building weight lifting session. It was the first time I've swam since last winter and I'd forgotten I kind of like it.

"Swimming is a very aerobic sport," says John McVan, aquatic specialist at Iowa State University in Ames."
I also forgot my goggles and I definitely need a new swimsuit, but it was a good change of pace. I didn't go all out but rather just kept my heart rate in the endurance zone and relaxed. It's almost hypnotic to go back and forth across the pool.

Swimming is a very good aerobic sport, and it is also one of the easiest on your body.

I used to swim more back home. It is a great workout. I haven't been swimming in ages.
