I’ve been for my first few swims! After 8 weeks of no swimming. I wasn’t sure how I would feel so I’ve just used it as an opportunity to get back in the water and enjoy it!
It can be fun to join a group or club swim for lots of reasons so I never tell a swimmer not to join in a group – even if it’s not a Total Immersion style practice.
