I’ve never really been one for doing laps of a swimming pool.
Whilst I enjoy “going for a dip” as much as the next person, I find swimming up and down the lanes of a pool doesn’t do it for me.
I find it boring.
I generally end up out-of-breath.
And it can be real hassle sharing the lane with other swimmers.
However. To counter my pathetic excuses.
It can be mentally therapeutic as my mind is freed up to contemplate “life, the universe & everything”.
It’s a good source of cardio-vascular fitness that will improve my lung capacity.
It’s a low-impact exercise that acts as excellent cross-training.
Whilst I don’t love it, I have done it before. And I have to admit that it wasn’t all that bad once I got into a routine.
What’s more, as summer starts to hot-up here in Tokyo, I may want to find a cool refreshing pool as an alternative to sweltering in the heat & humidity.
