It's perfectly fine. Just remember it is going to take you some time to get back in to things especially with more vigorous exercises like swimming. Wish you the best of luck with getting back into shape.

10 lengths? That's pretty good! I would be tired after 10 lengths as well. Next time maybe after the 10 lengths take a break to catch your breath and do another 10 lengths. Never give up. Never back down. You can do it bro!

Swimming is actually less rigorous because it's easier to move your body through water. It feels more difficult because most people have poor form (not saying I have good form, mine's OK at best). To get a good swim workout you have to be in there for a bit.

Uhmmm, no? Have you done any research about working out? Swimming, specifically? Obviously not, and I'm talking to downvoters too. If you had, you'd know that I am, in fact, correct and not talking out of my ass.

But 10 lengths of which pool? That's the important question. OP: *To lifeguard* "I'm going to swim a hundred laps and get fit again!" *Goes and thrashes around in the paddling pool*

10 lengths is nothing to be ashamed of. Maybe next time try to see if setting a more more moderate pace leaves you less out of breath. As long as you don't push yourself to exhaustion there's nothing wrong with taking a short rest in between laps until you are ready to go again, even if that means a rest every 10 laps.

It's alright! I just started swimming again 5 weeks ago and only did 8-10 lengths 4 times week, but you'llbe surprised how fast you can manage more! Now I can easily do 25, and I feel great! You should be proud of yourself, because I sure am. Keep going, it's worth it. You're worth it :)
