My Swim10Miles challenge

I took on my first ever Swim challenge!!

In November I signed up to the Swim10Miles challenge in aid of Mater Hospital patient care. The target of swimming 10 miles in 1 month seemed a bit out of reach as I was only swimming a couple of days a week and usually for less than a 1/2 mile. At that rate I would me way more than a month to complete it!

However it’s amazing what you can do when you have a goal and are part of a wonderful group of like minded people who all love to swim.  We each swam at our own pace and encouraged each other along the way. I was sick towards the end of November but found it great to have a reason to get back to it and I have to say I enjoyed every minute of it finishing my 10 mile challenge in early December.

It was such a pleasure being able to go downstairs to swim in my own heated pool whenever suited me, when others had to drive to their local pools and face traffic then changing room politics as well as swimlane log-jams! My own private pool was such bliss!

I might not look as elegant as many swimmers with my bum in the air, but swimming with my head down using a snorkel & mask has really helped my neck & shoulders and even helped me avoid surgery. And best of all I raised money for a great cause and discovered I could swim further & longer than I thought possible!

Enjoy swimming every day when you have your own pool at home. It will bring you hours of fun, relaxation & enjoyable exercise at home….all your need are togs (or not as you choose!!)


Building a Log Cabin pool room

Building a Log Cabin pool room

In late March we moved our pool outdoors as the room the pool had been in was again being used as an office. Even though I very much enjoyed swimming outdoors when the weather was nice, it wasn’t something we could count on. Even though the pool was lovely & warm with the heater & insulation working perfectly, the weather changes very quickly in Ireland and several times I had to contend with hailstones pummelling me!!  I do like my creature comforts so we we decided to build a log cabin as a pool room.

The pool needs a minimum of 2.6m x 3.5m so we chose to build a log cabin  3.5m x 4.5m to allow space to walk around the edges. Keep in mind that headroom of 1.2m is needed for the iPool Swim and nearly 1.4m is needed for the deeper iPool Fit.

With the added benefit that visitors can now come and try our pool.

I simply can’t state enough what a joy it is to have my own pool and just how luxurious it feels to swim and relax at home – I highly recommend it!


Fun in the sun in our outdoor pool

Fun in the sun in our outdoor pool

It’s great fun having a pool outside when the sun is shining! Our kids took full advantage of an unseasonal warm spell,  not very usual occurence in Ireland lol!

Enjoy swimming every day when you have your own saltwater pool at home. Inside or outside, it will bring you hours of fun & enjoyable exercise in your own home.

For maximum enjoyment all year round in Northern Europe & Ireland it is certainly recommended to add the heated package!


Fit at 50 - I swam a mile!!

I'm fitter at 50 - I swam a mile!!

WOW – I swam a mile in one go in under 40 minutes!! I’m so chuffed with myself!! When we got our pool just over a year ago I struggled to do even a tenth of this!! And I’ve just turned 50! Swimming every day really increases fitness!

I still use a snorkel & mask so I don’t have to raise my head to breathe even though the salt water doesn’t sting my eyes like in a chlorine pool.  It’s just much more relaxing and better for my neck & shoulders….and of course floating with pool noodles afterwards is my special reward!

And you can even celebrate in style!!!

For maximum enjoyment all year round in Northern Europe & Ireland it is certainly recommended to add the heated package! We certainly couldn’t have had a pool party in April in Ireland unless we a heated pool lol!!


Crystal Clear Saltwater Pool

Saltwater pools are low maintenance

The benefits of a saltwater system are low maintenance, no more red eyes and no noticeable pool chlorine smell. The Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater System eliminates the need to add chlorine. When pool salt passes through the Intex system’s electrolytic cell, it is re-energized into chlorine, which is converted again into algae and bacteria-destroying agents as it flows through the electrolytic cell. Immersion in salt water has proven health benefits and with only a tenth of the salt as seawater, you get the benefit without the taste!

 

It’s Crystal Clear!!

 

Did you ever notice after swimming in a chlorinated pool that harsh chemical smell on your skin that lingers long after you’d left the pool? That is caused by high levels of chlorine as well as the chloramines that are produced in these pools. It’s important to note, chloramine isn’t produced with a saltwater pool system.

Swimming in a saltwater pool helps cleanse your skin and saltwater is great for rejuvenating and exfoliating our largest organ. And as a natural moisturiser, saltwater increases our skin’s natural ability to retain moisture. With these exceptional health benefits, it’s hard to argue against the virtues of a saltwater pool.

Enjoy swimming every day when you have your own saltwater pool at home. Inside or outside, it will bring you hours of relaxation &  enjoyable exercise in your own home.

For maximum enjoyment all year round in Northern Europe & Ireland it is certainly recommended to add the heated package!


Snow problem with a heated SwimFitPool!!

Snow problem with a heated SwimFitPool!!

It may be cold outside but not in your heated SwimFitPool…  What can be better than to play in a heated pool to warm up after playing the snow!

Marco Polo is great fun – especially in a small pool! One person closes their eyes and spins around until dizzy , then tries to find the others….much splashing and laughing guaranteed!

Once the kids left Jacko made use of being snowbound!

Enjoy swimming every day when you have your own heated saltwater pool at home. Inside or outside, it will bring you hours of relaxation &  enjoyable exercise in your own home
