Comment of the week
“Thank you, Mark, for your swimming comments.
I hope you don’t mind if I share a personal story?
I spent my teenage years in Germany and Germany, I might add, has the best indoor and outdoor pools in the world. When I was in high school in the 1980s, every Friday our last two periods were for compulsory swimming where the instructor taught us proper swimming techniques the first hour and allowed free play afterward. My passion for swimming was born and I haven’t stopped swimming since. I love it! As you said, swimming is not only about cardio, but also about strength training and has many cognitive benefits as well. I swim 4 times a week – 45-60 minutes.
