So anyone who’s followed my fitness blogging on my website knows that for long time I have wanted a device or app that would help me with the swimming portion of my training. Well, I finally broke down and spent the $150 and bought the Garmin Swim Watch to help me track all the metrics related to swimming. I got the watch through REI using the fall member discount, so I saved 20% on the price. I debated for long time between getting the Garmin Swim watch and the Finess Swimsense watch. After reading a lot of the online reviews and different fitness sites, I decided to go with the Garmin Swim watch.
Well, I am glad I front loaded most of my training at the beginning of the month because the wear and tare is starting to show. It’s not that I didn’t want to work out this morning, it’s that my body didn’t. I had in mind to do a double session today, swim in the morning and strength train around lunch. I settled for just swimming. I had only 1 mile to go to reach my swim goal, but it might as well have been 10.
