Which is swimming equivalent to running?
Hi everyone! Actually, I’ve been running already for 2 years. My motivation is Michelle Jenneke. She is an Australian runner, who conquered the world by dance. Inspired by her success I started preparing for the marathon. Besides, the story of other famous runners’ success made me move forward. I learned how to become a marathon runner. So now am ready for my first competition.
Sometimes I feel too bored after running long distances. So I decided to try other kinds of sports. My trainer advised me to attend the swimming classes. As this activity strengthens all body muscles. Makes your body fit and toned. The body tonus after swimming would fix the result after running. That is why I was to become more ready for running a marathon. But actually, I do not know how much should I swim. In order to burn the same calories as while running. So my question is the following:
- Which is swimming equivalent to running? If you have the experience, share how much calories do you spend while swimming? Comparing with the running.
I’ll be glad to read your answers. Thanks for your help!
