Is it doable from couch potato to decent swimmer at 46 y/o?
I am new to the forum, actually I just learned about Total Immersion after going back from the pool completely wasted and disappointed about my performance.
I am 46 (47 next Nov 24th) and my goal -or dream better said- is to complete a Sprint Triathlon next year, something local, just for fun. The bike portion seems to be relative covered, I can routinely make 20miles in 1 hour, however literally I can't swim even 1-lenght (25 meters) without feeling completely exhausted, right now swim more than that seems like an impossible task to me.
Besides I need to swim because I have a low back problem and swimming seems to be an excellent therapy for it.
I wonder if you can give me an advice regarding which course to get first, the Freestyle Mastery Complete or the Ultra-Efficient Freestyle Complete? Do you think is possible to get better at my age??
