BTW Igy I have also started swimming.
My wife is a swimmer, and her teammates have gone down to Palm Springs, leaving her alone for a month. To keep her motivated, I have started joining her in the pool for warmdowns after my workouts.
I have done 2 so far: 200 and 250. LMAO I am increasing by 50m each time, and will be at 1000 in 1 month, and 1800 in 2 months.
She laughs at this, as she does 2500 for a workout. I've tried to explain that I'm so far just doing warmdowns, but she's not buying it.
I'm enjoying my micro-swims so far. Next workout ushers in the era of fly and flip-turns. I'm trying to be smart about it, because I have a tendency to go too hard. There are a few pools where we summer at which I will need to make a good showing this year. My wife calls me the Bulgarian Goalie (I am neither Bulgarian nor a goalie. Must be those square-cut trunks...)
Here's to you! Maybe when I come out to Idaho we can go for a swim after our run.
