Reply To: 65 year old masters seeking advice
I think a mistake many people make with USRPT (and in training in general) after a long layoff is that they are very excited about getting back to swimming (a good thing), so they go at it like gangbusters (a not such good thing)!
It makes better sense to go easy in the beginning and to work into it. There is no deadline for getting into shape as far as I know.
FYI, I have been doing USRPT only for a year and a half and I too am 65.
