This week I'm planning on dedicating my swims to the people of Boston. I have so many super friends and memories playing in that super city during my college years.
So here's the plan, and everyone, even non-swimmers can join in, no matter what level of athleticism you are in.
I'm planning on a total of 26.2 nautical miles (I use nautical miles because the math is easier :)), that's 26.2 x 2000 yards for you marathon swimmers, and if you have a big swim this summer you probably should be hitting this number by this time of year.
That's 52,400 yards for the week (split it up through a 5-7 swim week). Marathon swimmers... get to work.
I'm also planning on doing 26 x 200 yards in each workout, that's a good start (5200 yards right there).
Now, if you're a swimmer but not at that level, shoot for 26,200 yards for the week or split up 26 x 200 for the week.
The possibilities are endless.
Not a swimmer, but a walker or runner, get out on the road and total up your miles for a marathon for a week, most of you should be able to do this in 5 days... but the main thing is to do something in memory of those killed last week and honor those who suffered physically and mentally through the ordeals of the Boston tragic bombing.
I'll keep you posted with my workout.
Peace to all in the Boston area.
