Any runner knows that if you run and you don’t record it on your Garmin, it didn’t really happen. Well if the same is true for swimming, I just got my first “official” swim in yesterday.
Brian and I went for an open water swim and he had his Garmin on (mine isn’t water proof or made to track swimming because when I bought it, I thought never in a MILLION years I would need that functionality — little did I know!) and recorded our swim.
It wasn’t pretty, wasn’t fast and it wasn’t in a straight line either. (Yes, there’s a pattern forming here of me not being able to go from point A to point B in a straight line – if you don’t know what I’m talking about – read my previous post.) But at least it’s official!
So while I may not look it while I’m actually swimming – I’m official and legit because I’ve got the Garmin data to prove it!
Until next time,
Gotta run (or bike or swim)
