In order to improve my cardiovascular health I plan on running and swimming I chose these activities because they are exercises that I enjoy doing and are easily accessible for me I live near a track and have a membership to the YMCA The advantages of running and swimming are the development of cardiovascular strength the improvement of self-confidence and the improvement of ones appearance Also running can be done anywhere and really only requires shoes Swimming works all muscles of the body a lot can be exercised in a short period of time and only really requires a swimsuit and a pool Disadvantages of running are that its horrible for joints and often people get bored doing the same thing over and over again A major disadvantage to swimming is that it requires a pool Most people dont own their own pool and even if they did it would need to be an indoor pool to continue the use of this plan year-round unpredictable weather circumstances occur all of the time As a result people often have to schedule times for swimming in accordance with open pool hours I plan to swim twice a week for 45 minutes and run 3 times a week for 30 minutes Intensity wise 20 minutes of the swim will be done at a moderate pace 15 at a fast pace and 10 will be used for a cool down As for running 15 minutes will be done at a moderate pace 10 at a fast pace sprinting and 5 slowly as a cool down The 15 minutes of swimming and 10 minutes of running will be my form of cardiovascular overload Those 2 sets of time will be when I push myself the most striving to become stronger in a good fashion Over the time period in my fitness plan I intend on increasing each of my overload periods of swimming and running by 1 minutes
