Getting back in the pool... again...

I have decided to get back into the pool after a long hiadeous. Battling the foot pain has lead me to the conclusion that I am not doing enough well rounded training so the overuse injuries are starting to mount up.

I have a couple of goals with getting back into swimming, one of which is to sign up for a few triathlons next year! Getting back into multisport racing has been lingering in the back of my mind for quite some time and this off season will be a great time to build the foundation I have been lacking for the past 6 to 12 months!

Today's swim felt good. It went like this:

4 x 100 yds
4 x 50 yds
4 x 25 yds
Total: 700 yds.

Yes this is a pretty weak swim workout but the ultimate goal is to stay healthy, don't blow out a shoulder, and work up to at least one mile of constant swimming. Speed workouts will come later... much later.
