Whilst not being able to train in the pool, naturally fitness levels will drop as you aren’t doing as much exercise. Some form of daily cardio will help maintain these fitness levels as best as possible. This could be going for a run or fast-paced walk, whether it’s around the block or down at the park, or a bike ride which includes different levels of intensity through out.
If you want to track your cardio workouts, whether it be a run, walk or bike ride, there are a number of apps that can be used to record data. Some apps available are:
- Strava (iOS and Android)
- Map My Ride by Under Amour (iOS and Android)
- Map My Run by Under Amour (iOS and Android)
- Map My Walk by Under Amour (iOS and Android)
After you’ve been out for a walk/run/bike ride, be sure to let your coach know what you’ve been up to. Send them a screenshot of your workout and even share it with your friends.
