How Metallica stepped up my game at the pool this morning

As you might remember, i believe in hard work- and in indulging yourself from time to time to keep you on the path to achieving your goals-be it saving money, eating healthy, or working out.

Since i believe being consistent is key for almost everything in life, occasional indulgence is imperative to keep us going. (being only human and all that).

So after a few years of running I decided it’s time for more core work, Pilates , yoga and some moderate weight lifting ( up to 6 kilo’s in each hand let’s not get excited here) .

A few months ago i felt i needed a change. something fresh to get me to workout with joy and excitement. (yes i did just write that).

So i decided to indulge myself and get a multiple entry ticket to the pool near my work. it costs me 10$ for 10 entries, i get there as soon as they open (05:30 am) -and swim for 45 min- 1.5 kilometers. then i shower there and get to work by 06:30.

The advantages of swimming are many: swimming is therapeutic and you can take pressure off your back and knees while working your whole body .

But- it can be monotonous. some might even say -boring.

So i searched on line and found this.


syryn waterproof mp3

i am not sponsored by this company, i payed full price for my syryn and i am enjoying it so much i had to share.

Listening to powerful music underwater is definitely a different experience.

If you are a music lover and are used to listening to music while working out, then these   60$ are not a  “spend” but an  “investment” you should seriously consider making.

this device can be used both underwater and on regular ground, it comes with these great quality goggles, and changeable earplugs.

it has 8 giga of storage and i put about 10 pink floyd/deep purple/metallica/led zeppelin/pearl jam/bob dylan albums on it -and i still have a lot of extra space.

So this morning Metallica’s “black” album was my choice du jour. time just flew by and i ended up doing 2 kilometers in 60 minutes, and enjoying every minute of it.

This for me- is the essence of frugality: saving so you can spend your money on things that contribute to your well-being. and wow Metallica contributed greatly to my well-being this morning.

have a great day! the cooliflower.
