First time swimming in 25 years
Hello, I have been talked in to taking part in a triathlon, which I am now looking forward to.
I cycle about 20 miles a week on average already, with occasional rides up to about 50/60 miles.
I haven't been swimming for 25 years since I was at school, where my maximum ever distance was around 25/50m!!
My question please is I'm going swimming for the first time next week, how far (roughly) should I realistically expect to be able to swim based on the above level of fitness.
It would just be good to have a rough idea of what to expect.
Of course, fully expecting to have to take things one step at a time, etc.
Thank you in advance.
