I have started to swim again. When I was younger I was on a swim team. I still remember going to my first meet and diving before the gun sounded and got a yellow slip and was disqualified. I have added swimming laps into my workout routine at least 2x a week. Let me tell you, it is tough! I love being in the water, I have no pain and I feel so free.... I feel "One with the water". It relaxes me like yoga relaxes people. I usually do the breast-stroke, back-stroke, freestyle and run in the water!!! I encourage you to add swimming to your workout routine! I am halfway to my goal so I am changing things up a bit so I don't slam into a plateau. I swim for 30-40 minutes, then just like I do after every workout I spend 10-15 minutes in the steam room. The steam room is amazing. I posted a link below so you can understnad the benefits of the steam room!
