Swimming, I really love it. I managed 2 lots of 20 lengths (17m) at a reasonable pace and a fair bit of gentle stuff/front crawl (which is and was my worse stroke, harder then butterfly but I still managed a full length without stopping to cough up half the pool - I think I could actually get reasonable at front crawl eventually.

~1000m in all which considering everything (including this being my third session after a gap of many years) is damn good. Not quite back to my 1mile in 40minutes but I might yet get there.

(For those who might think that swimming => a certain ability to walk, it really doesn't, weight of myself on my joints is problematic (as in for the entire swimming I had less pain in total then walking more then 20m on a normal day or standing on a bad day) and there is also balance and dizziness and exhaustion (water allows effort to go into moving not just staying upright) so please don't assume this)
