|Fitness||does swimming really burn that many calories?||Sep 30 2011
I have been swimming 3 miles per swim session (1.5 hrs) between 4 and 6 times per week for 9 months and can attest that No, your arms will not fall off. I swim my 3 miles non-stop and find it the most relaxing, meditative exercise ever! Challenge yourself to increase your non-stop lap swim sessions and you to can get there. I went from swimming one mile sessions to 3 miles in January of 2011 (first going for a 30 min non-stop swim, then 45 minutes, then made the jump to 3 hrs) and by May was swimming the 3 miles non-stop. I get out of the water ready to take on my day and have so much energy and the endorphins are a wonderful bonus!
Keep on swimming...but not in my lane!
FYI, I was never a competetive swimmer but love the sport nonetheless.
