About the holiday: Great for your heart and lungs and a great low impact calorie burner so today forget the floaty and do some laps since it’s Swim a Lap Day. There are several types of swim strokes and include Front Crawl Stroke, Backstroke, Breaststroke (the most difficult and exhausting) and the Dog Paddle. An Olympic size pool is 50 meters or 164 feet long. A 150 pound person can burn 272-285 calories by swimming for 30 minutes. (courtesy of Giftypedia.com)
