Earlier this year when I started swimming and was struggling with kick-turns, I told myself (and wrote) that once I swam 100 consecutive laps in the pool, then I'd be ready to start swimming with the Masters. Well, I started swimming with the Masters this week and decided I'd better make good on my committment. So, today after work, I jumped in and did 100 non-stop laps (2500 meters) without touching the side of the pool with anything other than the bottom of my feet. I can't say I'm any faster than when I started (that's where the Masters will come into play), but my swimming endurance has improved.
