Swimming is a form of exercise, even if it's leisurelyIt's a hot day, so my family and I go swimming. To ensure I get a work out on top of the leisurely hours' swim, I take my five year old for around the entire pool on my neck. I had to walk/swim (using my whole body) for a workout. Then after I dropped him off with his Dad, I took my younger son for another trip round. I actually got a stitch so had to sit down for a bit in the foot deep water edge before swimming/trudging back.
Important notes to remember:
- Always remember if you get any pain, stop, breathe and rest before starting up again.
- Get your children involved in your workout to help with you maximise it and make it fun for you and them.
Now go swimming, it's hot enough!!
