Swimming is one of the best ways to get a low impact work out.

After a long hard run, a swim is cooling, relaxing and works out all the tight muscles.

When I started swimming I quickly found that equal side to side breathing was important. I could breath on my right but not my left. I took one whole day and learned to breath on my left. It made a big difference to be able to breathe on both sides.

Summer is here, get some sunscreen and head out to the pool!

(We are going for a bike ride, but I'll see you at the pool tomorrow!)

    Love swimming, just don't have transportation to a pool. Saving for a car, so hopefully, swimming will come in the near future, if nothing comes up, I know stay positive. Okay I am.

    There is nothing like a good swim to work out the kinks! I have a bum shoulder so bilateral breathing has it's own set of issues for me. Some days I can, other days I can't. It's all good though, I LOVE to swim.

    Wow, I am jealous. I am struggling to learn to breathe on my left side. Even when I float on my back...that side starts to sink. I'll keep working and you enjoy this wonderful holiday weekend. emoticon
