Finally reached my swimming goal. I hit one mile this morning.

2-3 times a week I swim laps. Best exercise I've ever done. I love it. I swam 37 laps in 56 minutes. Prolly could have done it a tad quicker but my left foot was cramping up the last two laps and it slowed me done.

Anyways, I'm pretty proud of myself and wanted to share my accomplishment .

I also swam today. Also a mile. Also got foot cramps (first time ever). Weird.

Congrats on the milestone.

As Detroit dad I thought this was about a road named 1 Mile I was awaiting some epic armed robbery store. So a bit disappointed but congrats ;)

Thanks guys. I was pretty proud of this accomplishment. I was fat, out of shape, and have a bad back. A couple of years I stumbled into swimming as an exercise. Turns out, I love swimming laps. I normally do it during the week. My time is limited so I haven't really been able to try to go a mile.

When I went swimming SAT. morning, I thought, fuck it. Lets give it a shot.

I'll take two days off of swimming before going back. My shoulders are pretty sore. I'll probably hit the treadmill this morning.

fwiw, I lost 25-28 pounds. I've kept it off for a year :)

Great accomplishment! I know how hard it is to maintain a workout routine over the long haul. Keep up the good work!
