Ok, so as my knees aren't playing ball, I've switched over to swimming goals. Read about this Dart 10K swim, which sounds like the one to do. Start lurking on some swim threads. That's when the knots in the stomach and the blood draining from my face started.
I'm reading about people doing 20, 000+ metres in the pool each week, which is 4K EVERY time they go Now here's my concern; I was thinking more along the lines of 3 swims a week- 2 shorter ones, tempo, drills, etc. Then a longer one building up to 3 or 4 Km until the lakes open again.
Comparing them to me, they're going twice as often and doing more than double the distance when they do go. Am I not doing enough, or are they just going nuts on mileage?
I really do want to do this, but not so it's all I ever do, as these forums seem to be suggesting.
