    Well done! I love swimming, it's great exercise. What size is your pool? 64 lengths of a 25m pool is 1 mile x

    our pool is 20m so 40 laps would be 1/2 mile and 80 1 mile

    Well done that's brilliant. I am going swimming on Monday for the first time in about 16years!! I don't know if I can even still swim. I'm so nervous, but it shows how far I've come because this time last year I wouldn't have even entertained the idea. I just don't know how I'm going to manage to get from the changing room to the pool. Somehow it will happen though lol. xx

    I agree with Pudgy Panda. I barely take any notice of what people look like when they're at the pool-unless they're wearing a nice swimming costume that catches my eye :D I was really worried about going to the pool when I started swimming again last year, but everyone was so nice and friendly and it really boosted my confidence. I go to the lunch time adult only swim at my teeny local baths (tis an old Victorian baths, so it really isn't v big) and to be honest, most people that seem to go a cuddly ladies like me :D

    Lol thanks everyone. I've come down with a cold now which is a bit annoying but hoping it doesn't get any worse before tonight, because I don't want to put off going, or it will just get more scary. If that makes sense. I'll let you know how I get on xx
