Started back on MVF after a long time away accumulating weight and thought I needed to do more than just watch what I put in my stomach if I was to make sure any success would be sustainable this time.
Joined the local healthclub in January and started swimming. Not sure of the length of the pool but probably only 10m or so. Anway in a 30 minute swim I was doing 20 lengths at the start of my current MVF group and by the end of it I am double that level and hitting an average of 200 lengths a week. I am a pretty crap swimmer so I have to put a lot of effort in , but hey the benefits are worth it.
I am in the water more than Aquaman these days but loving it. Has definately made me fitter (and trimmer)
