Workouts and Inspiration from a lifelong swimmer


  1. Monday Aerobic Motivation

    Today was kind of a "where am I at?" test in terms of my aerobic base after taking about 4 weeks off. It's not pretty, but it was a start and went better than I thought. I'll be using longer aerobic sets as the main set for the next couple weeks to try and build my endurance back up. All said and done, this took about an hour today. Happy swimming!
