I just started swimming and plan to go twice a week as long as I can. I loved it! Gravity is not my friend right now. But I've never swam (swum?) for exercise before, so I'm wondering if you have a pattern that you follow to keep things interesting. Yesterday I just did freestyle at a moderate pace for a half hour, but I think I'll be more likely to stick with it if I have a pattern of some sort.
Also - here's the girly question - do you do anything to protect your hair? I have very dry hair already and I'm afraid of what biweekly chlorine baths will do to it!
Thanks in advance for any tips!
