Randomly came across this website and I'm going to give some of the workouts a try. I figure it is a good way to keep the workouts competitive instead of just doing leisurely laps back and forth a few times a week. I will TRY not to burn out on this swimming thing but I am excited about the prospect of swimming a mile without feeling that drowning midway is a better option.
I'll start with the swim a mile in 6 weeks program and start on week two. Meaning that by the end of August, I should be able to swim the mile. Wish me luck.
