Lap Swimming the Ocean for Fitness

It isn't the first time I've done it but it is much warmer this time. Lap swimming the ocean makes a big difference in terms of working out or not working out. We know that everything is closed down. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me as everything else in the economy is decimated. We need a cure and we need the ability to protect ourselves while engaging in our normal lives. Businesses and lives are being ruined by this little monster virus. It goes to show you that nature is our mother and has more influence over our lives than we think.

Sorry...I went a little on a soap box.

Anyway...I went ocean swimming and it was more fun than I thought. I have underwater headset to listen to music in the pool. It works well in the ocean as well. So I went on my way, put on my wet suit, through over my hood and jumped into the water.

It wasn't that cold with the suit. I swam back and for for about 45 minutes. The waves make a much more difficult swim then in the pool. Thus, I suspect with the suit and fighting the waves my swim burned many more calories.

Stay Safe and try some new stuff. Life is short so enjoy it!
