So that you don’t think this blog is turning into a wedding blog, I had to share this article with you! Not only is swimming awesome because you get a good workout and there may be some cute boys in swimsuits, but researchers have found that swimmers may be smarter than the average human being!
“There’s a strong synergy between language and action with swimming that’s essential for many cognitive and motor skills, she adds. Kids learn at an early age to hear language and make connections with their bodies (for example, counting to 10 while kicking).”
Team Michael forever!
Not convinced that being smart is enough of a reason to swim? Here are a few more:
– Low-impact sport
– Strengthens joints and improves posture
– Improves breathing
– Improves cardiopulmonary capacity
– Anyone can do it!
And for anyone interested, here’s the workout I had yesterday at practice!
900 warm up
4 x 300 on 4:00
10 x 50 flutter kick on back with fins :45
50 easy recovery
4 x 100 breast pull 2:15
4 x 100 IM 2:15
200 cool down
Total: 3650 yards
Shout out to my friend Carly for showing me the article about swimming and brainpower ! Maybe that’s why I’m just so smart! haha
Do you ever swim? I think it’s the only sport that keeps pulling me back in!
