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!

It's also called the American or freestyle crawl. Today I did half a kilometer with small breaks.

And dude, my swimming pool has all shapes and sizes, from bald muscle gods to hairy elderly people. Unlike a gym, the pool is actually fairly representative of society at large.
