Quoting Boots+3:" I swim! (Even now, when I'm pregnant, I just swim very slowly) Where you are sound like a great starting ... [snip!] ... when you have to swim around trying to find your cheapie earplugs due to the fact that they couldn't stay in your ears."
lol, thanks for the tip. I probably won't bother with them unless I notice an issue.
I'm swimming to add diversity to my exercise routine. I usually run a few miles and then do strength training. I work out about 5 days a week. I just want to replace some running with swimming to get a lower impact/full body work out. It's always helpful to me to have a goal, so I may start timing myself and see how I'm progressing!
