My unexpected swimming progress
I haven't swim for a few months, not since I started running. But yesterday I fell unwell and decided to do that instead of going for a run.
To be honest when I go to swim I always do it for mucsle relaxation, not setting up goals, so I swim slowly until i get either tired or bored.
So yesterday I have realised that I managed to swim for 15 mins without having a break! I know it might sound silly for you experienced runners with lungs of the size of a planet, but I never could do it, I used to get tired quickly. I was so pleased to see results of running and see myself getting fitter.
To be honest the reason I started all this fitness thing and 1.5 ago is because I wanted to get stronger and fitter plus to strech my comfort zone. People keep telling me I am slim enough naturally and I don't need to exercise. What a lot of rubbish! It's all about being strong and fit, no matter of what size you are!
