View Full Version : First Day

Well, I had my first day and it went well. Well, as good as expected. I was able to do 2 lengths non-stop (getting my heartrate up to about 125-135). Then I would need a break for about 45sec to a min and go again.

Amazing how high your heartrate gets with an easy swim pace. And, how tired you get from an easy swim pace LOL.

Thanks for all the help!

I forgot to mention.....I have never been so sore in my life! Mind you it has been 1 1/2 months since I did any type of exercise. Not sure howmy body will take 30 minutes on the elliptical glider tomorrow....not to mention my shoulder and leg workout.

Let's see if I live though that. :)

don't kill yourself-Get used to going first and then you will start to increase the lenght and effort of the workout.

I couldn't swim to the end of the pool when I first started and 6 months later I swam across the chesapeake bay.

Get into the habit of going first. Make it fun. Then its all easy from there.
