I am a novice swimmer; I started swimming to lose weight (220 lbs over the last 8 years, 65 lbs in the last 4 months) but am now interested in challenging myself. I am getting myself ready for my first open-water swim of 1 mile.
Can anyone give me advice on workouts I can do in the pool to prepare for a 1 mile swim? I have been just swimming about a mile a day, 4-5 days a week. I am looking for more specific types of workouts, other than just getting in the pool and swimming at my normal, comfortable pace.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
