Way to go! I too am a dinosaur with a million years since teenage workouts. I get a little wiggy in dark water, thinking about creatures below. How do people handle deadwood and grass? It's kept me from swimming in open water.

Holly/Texas. Time Zone: CST; Don't do anything today you can't maintain for the rest of your life; Studies show a mere 11 minutes of weight training 3 times a week is enough to reduce your body fat and raise your metabolism.
I have recently returned to swimming after what seems like a life time. A challenge from my acupuncturist finds me taking it to a level I never would have before. I am swimming three times a week, averaging 2000 yards/workout. I am registered to swim an 1 mile long fresh water race on August 18, the Nuclear Swim in Hillsborough, NC. My acupuncturist is swimming it with me. Glad to find this forum and challenge!
