It’s that time again – time to get back to the swim club. Oy! It’s been a few weeks since I was in a pool regularly and I think this is gonna hurt. What’s going to make it worse is that I have “graduated” from their beginner, stroke correction/refinement program and moved to the regular club…which means a 90-minute swim class.
I’m pretty confident that I will actually feel worse than dear old Flounder and Sebastian…but hey, gotta (re)start somewhere right? I haven’t done 90 minutes of swim class since I was a teenager! Scary, right? I think so.
Though oddly I am looking forward to it. It’s a chance to see and workout with a dear friend and it’s a change from running and it gives my body a break from the impact of running. I’m hoping that, if I add a second swim to my week of workouts, I will see a difference in my running performance and maybe even my physique (though I’m not thinking the latter will show much change with twice a week swims).
Plus, I am hoping that, by doing this once weekly class, that this will eventually make swimming part of my regular repertoire and that, one day, when I can’t run anymore, I can opt for the pool for a way to stay fit.
Do you swim? Part of a swim club? Noticed changes in your running after taking up swimming? Let me know!
