Last night I measured my pool to figure out how many times I will have to swim back and forth to equal a 25m lap.
I also googled beginner swim workouts. I'm going to try out this one from Zero to One Mile.
It's a six week program. I'm going to try out the first week and see how I do with that or see if I need to build up to it still. Did I mention I'm a little out of shape and haven't swam seriously yet? ;)
WEEK one (Three Days):
4 x 100 yards (or meters)...rest for 12 breaths between 100s
4 x 50 yards...rest for 8 breaths between 50s
4 x 25 yards...rest for 4 breaths between 25s
total: 700 yards
