I survived my first swim workout on Thursday. It wasn't bad - a 450 yd total - but my arms definitely need some strength training and my endurance is lacking. Considering this is the first time I've swum a workout in 2 years or so, it's an okay starting point.
As for the running, I have a long ways to go. This is definitely my weak point. 13 minutes into my 20 minute treadmill run this morning, I had cramps all throughout my torso - shoulders to waist. I walked for 3 minutes, then finished up the last 4 minutes with little trouble. I ran at 12:00 pace which felt pretty comfortable, aside from all the cramping. It's time to start eating bananas like a monkey and get my potassium count up.
I gotta start somewhere, and this is where I am. It stinks right now, but I'm on my way to improving. Things are looking up.
