I feel I need to be more fit in general. I have not been into treadmilling, running(I do love to run but for short distances), same with cycling.(I don't know if this is this a problem with attitude or if some people are more suited with sprint than endurance)
I love swimming(just the feel of the water,flowing through the fluid),Yoga, bodyweight calisthenics (ex. squats, pushups, pullups..) trekking and a few other outdoor activities.
The Tabata interval exercise I thought was a great way to improve aerobic fitness for swimming given the short workout.
Thanks to TI I think I have improved on my swimming technique a lot since I started. But I still find it difficult to swim a long distance at a stretch. I have improved on relaxation aspect, breathing and SL and still improving on these but I feel Good swimming=Good technique + fitness.
So the part of the equation that i also need to work on is fitness.
