Back in the water

I was back in the pool for a short workout today after a week of being sick and not exercising much at all. The respiratory infection is under control, thanks to antibiotics, and now the race is on to get my lungs clear of congestion before something else yucky decides to set up camp there. I’m exercising at pretty low intensity—anything more than that triggers asthmatic coughing fits, which just end up adding to the congestion and prolonging the recovery. So here’s the mini-workout I did this morning:
1000 warmup / easy swimming (400s, 200k, 200p, 200s)
4 x 200 FR, odds pull with paddles, moderate pace, evens swim build to mod-fast
It feels really good to be doing stuff with my body again besides coughing and sniffling!
