and I garsh darn didn't drown.
Seriously, I have to tell you...it was easier then when I used to swim pre-pregnancy (like 5 years ago, haha). Two possibilities behind this? #1) My butt has a heck of a lot more fat on it now a days...I was more buoyant because of this??? Possibility #2...and my personal preference ;)...I'm in better shape cardio wise then I was back then. I can't remember how regularly I was doing cardio but I have a solid 2 years under my belt of non-stop cardio exercise. So maybe I'm in better shape? Or.....maybe a combo of both?
I got in the pool with very low expectations...to finish a 1/2 hr of non-stop swim. No counting laps, no speed work...just swim. And I did 45 minutes! And I could've kept going but I didn't want to over do it. I'm glad I stopped because I was cuh-ramping like crazy through out the day afterwards. Oh my gosh. My butt and legs. Out of control. Anyways. So far, swimming=success. It felt really good and a far better workout then I've been pulling off at the gym the last 2 weeks or so.
What up pool? You thought you were going to school me huh? Nope. Fat pregnant Anna schooled YOU!
Happy Monday! :)
