You seem to want too much, too fast. I would dare anyone to say they learned how to swim like Terry from the video in 3 weeks. I've been at this for 3 summers. Each summer progressing and...

Maybe a doctor should give you advice

If you are feeling pressure and have had stress ekgs I suggest you have that conversation with your physician to be sure that your exercise program is consistent with your health status.
