Workout for Friday, 18 January

Another good swim with my Garmin Swim (great Christmas present!).  I really like having swimming in my workout rotation because it’s a great workout (cardiovascular and muscular endurance) while being incredibly low impact (at least the way I do it).  It really helps me increase my overall activity level without increasing the impact and wear & tear on my body.

And the Garmin Swim is fantastic.  I haven’t messed with the drills mode yet, but for lap swimming I love it.  Just click it on and start swimming.  It keeps track of the time and the distance and the number of laps like magic.  So much easier than using my Garmin 310XT or a regular Timex Ironman watch.

Here’s some shots of the data it collects:

Now I just have to figure out what the hell these graphs are trying to tell me.  Anyone out there speak “Garmin Swim Data”?
