"Just keep swimming..."

It's about time that I got my butt working out again. So I started this past Wednesday, with my friend Meghan. We went swimming, and did a good "welcome back to swimming" workout--it has been over two and a half years since my last shoulder surgery, which is when I stopped swimming.

We did a pretty good workout:
2 x 75 yards free; 30 sec. rest after each 75
1 x 100 yards free; 30 sec. rest after 100
1 x 100 yards free kick
2 x 75 yards free; progressive

That means we did 500 yards, or just over 1/4 mile. :)
We went swimming again today, and did the same workout. Next time, we may increase our yardage or at least the distance per set. I'm pretty stoked about working out again, for those who are so curious, this is more or less the plan:
2 x per week swim
3 x per week bike (probably just on the trainer until I get cleared to do anything else)
2 x per week physical therapy

I'll keep you all updated on my workout progress. :P

congrats on your workout.

And condolences about the election. Fry a shrimp on the barbie for me.
