Do you lap swim in a pool? I'm going to try to start swimming laps this weekend. I'm intimidated at trying something new in a public setting, but I really want to do it.

Yes, and I really like it. It is quite relaxing, you don't have to keep track of sets or exercises (if you don't want to). It trains the whole body without much effort, and just the feeling of weightlessness in the water is nice.

People who swim laps at the pool range from people doing breaststroke with their head above the water to ex-competitive swimmers. So you'll probably not be out of place.
