New Respect For Swimmers

I’ve never been a swimmer and hence, whenever anyone asks me about doing a triathlon, I just laugh.  But, now my 8-year old has gotten into swimming. They run a mile then swim for 90-minutes 3x per week.  I figured if she could do it than I could.  Big mistake.

I tried to swim for 30-minutes that other day and felt like I was going to pass out.  I’m sure it was a good workout, but I realized that like running I need to manage my expectations and start small.  This may be a good new years resolution…make it one hour swimming.
