Maybe your child just joined a summer league swim team and it’s given you the itch to swim yourself. Or maybe you are a good runner and cyclist but your swimming skills are preventing you from trying a triathlon. Whatever the case, I’ve created an advice document intended for adults that want to start swimming as a form of workout. The document includes advice for initially building up your stamina, sample workout sets, stroke advice, equipment recommendations, tips for avoiding injury and a website reference for finding good lap pools while on business travel. You can download the document here. And if you later end up getting really serious, check out the swim workouts for competitive swimmers on my Swimming page.
