Whew! I get off work at 4 so I got to the gym around 415 and the pool only had two guys in it, both older and out of shape like me :D Aaaaaah I was so happy! It really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and once I got in the pool it was just me and the water again and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I also wore ear plugs so I couldn't hear anyone but myself, works like a charm!

Check with someone who works at the pool. Find out which lanes are the slow lanes and if there are times when you're more likely to get your own lane rather than sharing.

Then you just have to bite your lip and go do it. BTDT and it got easier, way easier.

I know the feeling, I don't even own a swimsuit because I refuse to be seen in one. I guess what I'd do is remind myself that I'm there to swim, not to look at others, and just hope everyone else thinks the same way.

Alrighty, so I just joined a gym for the first time in my life and today I will be using the pool for the first time. I used to be on swim team in high school, but that was 6 years and 40 pounds ago when I was actually fit lol. I'm SUPER NERVOUS about swimming in front of people! Especially since when I went yesterday there were two men already in the pool who were fit as could be :/ Does anyone have any tips on how to build up my confidence enough to do laps in the pool???? :(
