Swimming Outside

It's been a long week, so I decided to get some different exercise this week. I've run a few times and didn't want to wear out my legs, so I hit the gym today and swam.

Outside

I've neglected swimming all summer, and it showed. The pool at the gym is OK, but it gets crowded. However they have a large outdoor area, including a lap section. I went out in the September sun and spent 30 minutes going back and forth. It was tough, and I'm definitely out of swimming shape, but I held my breathing to every third stroke for the entire 1200yds.

Felt good. Not sure I'll get to go again before they close for the winter, but I want to try. Maybe I'll be able to sneak over early Sun morning.
