Today starts week five of my marathon training. The schedule calls for 45 minutes of cross training. I swam at the Y during lunch for 46 minutes and covered about 1-1/8 miles. It was a good swim, probably one of the best I've had in a while. I tried swimming hard for one lap and then easy for the next and alternated this for most of the distance. I think this is going to improve my cardiovascular capacity tremendously. My hernia is still very sore. It doesn't hurt when I swim but when I got out of the pool, WHOA! I think I better start using the ladder or I am going to make it worse.
