I am now 27 and during my school years did a lot of swimming and running to a reasonable level, managing a 1,500m freestyle pb of 16:48 in the pool.
I am now considering entering some triathlons later in the year as I have been doing quite a lot of running over the last year, averaging around 50 miles a week and can feel my fitness coming back slowly.
If anyone has started swimming again after a similar 8/9 year gap, how long did it take to get back into it? Are we looking at months or years?! Obviously I'm not expecting to get back down to previous times, but possibly a 20 minute 1500m.
Any input would be much appreciated.
