Ooh what's front crawl training?
God I wish I wasn't so insecure about my body to swim. I'm a somewhat hairy man and haven't been in a pool shirtless since I was like.. 14? Swimming is so nice and easy on your joints.
Totally agree with getting in being the priority over how successful those sessions are. Turning up is a huge chunk of the battle!
Let me know how the 1k swim progresses, very keen to hear how it goes!
