logging exercise and using a hot tub?

Options
Hi,
1. I start a workout plan tomorrow with stretching called blogilates for beginners. What should I log this in cardio or strength?
2. Usually after I swim i get in the hot tub. Im usually only in there 10-15 minutes. I only swim between 45-95 minutes each time. Lately my muscles have been more sore if i get in the hot tub then when I don't. Is it bad to go from a workout in cold water to sitting in the hot tub? Should I be stretching longer than 5 min before I get into the hot tub?
3. If you make comments on my eating or exercising. Then look at my log from the last few days. Ignore today though because I haven't had my dissert yet.

Please and thank you for posting.

    Log the amount of time you were swimming and eat back a portion of them. Don't worry about the rest.

    1. Cardio. There is an option for Pilates.
    2. No. Not bad. And doesn't your pilates program have a cool down part of its program? Are you doing 5 additional minutes of cool down stretching after it? If so...seems that'd be enough. If you find it not, then consider incorporating some foam rolling. Depending on how long you've been doing this, it may just be your body getting used to working out.

    Tinkides, I don't know what blogilates for beginners are. Pilates? I don't do those. Are you taking a shower in your swimsuit before getting into the hot tub? You could do your stretches while doing that and see if that works. 45 to 95 minutes of swimming is a LOT! I don't know a lot about all this, just using common sense (which could very well be wrong!).

    My question is why are you exercising so much?
    When you log exercise calories like 1900 and 1500 ( in the last weeks) Why pick up another exercise>

    I remember you had posts were you already said you swim sometimes for hours.

    If your muscles hurt when you use the hot tub after swimming, don't use the hot tub after swimming. That's easy! :)

    And if your right arm hurts after banging it against a wall, stop banging it against a wall. You're right; that's easy! Although I should hope that the hot tub (which I've not used yet at my Y) won't hurt me!

    Because my swimming membership ends at the end of july and I will start working more. I do the swimming more for the fun than the workouts. I don't swim for hours.

    ok understand but 1900 burned calories a titsy bitsy high for one exercise... i swim 60 minutes daily with an HRM and only get about 300 a day.

    But fine lol was used wondering why if you exercise so much which obviously seem to injure you ( seen the other threads and posts you make about acking muscles and painful muscles) why you started more exercising.

    I would do that too if I had enough money to buy one or to buy one used.

    Way to go with swiming.

    Oh you are a brave soul to use a public hot tub.
