I LOVE TO SWIM!! (but NOT under the sea, in an octopussys garden!)

So just a few weeks ago I decided I would go swimming again, as I wanted to do something else physical as well as my Re-bounding.  I absolutly love swimming.

Did you know……

  • An hour of vigorous swimming will burn up to 650 calories. It burns off more calories than walking or biking.
  • Swimming strengthens the heart and lungs
  • Swimming works out all of the body’s major muscles
  • Swimming help reduce stress
  • Water’s buoyancy make swimming the ideal exercise for physical therapy and rehabilitation or for anyone seeking a low-impact exercise.
  • Swimming is a great cardiovascular exercise because you are moving against the water’s resistance, which is over ten times that of the air.

(facts taken from http://igentry.blogspot.co.uk/2008/05/interesting-facts-about-swimming.html )

So as you can see wimming is REALLY REALLY good.  I try to go swimming at least twice a week.

So happy swimming everyone!! 🙂
