New Swim Challenge
Tuesday, December 22, 2015
It's been awhile since I've talked about swimming and I'm super excited about my new challenge, so I thought I'd share with my lovely friends here on SparkPeople.
First let me just recap and say that I love to swim. For me, there is absolutely nothing better or more therapeutic than the rhythmic strokes as I watch the tiles go by in the pool. When I jump into that pool I feel free, weightless and powerful. I swim at work with some of my colleagues and I value our time together and feel such a strong kinship with these people.
Im off for winter break, and I found myself a little lost and concerned about not being in the pool for 2 weeks, so I went out and found a pool that I can use a punch pass for instead of a monthly membership. I have a free pool, I don't want to pay a monthly membership, so I was looking for something that fit. I had to get into the system and while I waited I noticed they had a program called "Swim the 14ers." Being from Colorado I was intrigued by this program. I took an info sheet and found more information.
The program asks you to track your swimming and every 300 meters that you swim you check off a box and after 15 boxes it's equivalent to one 14er. For me that would take a little more than two workouts to swim a 14er. I love this idea and started the very next day. I can't wait to successfully climb my first 14er. This fitness challenge is perfect for me on so many levels and I am so excited that I had to share it with all of you. So, has anyone else found something similar that worked for them?
