MCM Training Day No.10 ~ Cross Train ~ Swim

On my cross training days, I have the option to bike or swim, today I chose to swim. First time back in the pool after surgery. As usual, but without regret, my swim was pitiful if not painful. Plan called for 40 minutes. Did manage to get in 1475 yds, give or take. I say this because I have come to realize that the Garmin Forerunner 920XT is not as reliable a "lap counter" as they make it out to be. Total swim time recorded; 46:53.

Swimming will help build and keep endurance, without the painful impact on the ol' joints. To do this, I have to make sure the heart is racing. Today it was!

Tomorrow will be a "pain" day: Intervals! After warm ups, 6 x 1 min in Z4 / 2 min Z1! Stat Tuned!
