We have an unheated pool so swimming eventually comes to an end. Usually, it is around October but sometimes swimming ends in November. I wish I could swim all year because right now I'm really excited about swimming still and it is giving me some good exercise. When is swimming over for you?

Since having a back injury and really packing on some pounds not only did my doctor tell me but my surgeon as well to get my butt into the pool. I have a memebership at one of our local gyms that has a pool. They told me to get at least 5 times a week. Well I am in the pool about twice a week now and working on getting in there 3 times a week. I have to start off really slow that I don't go and over do it. I still seem to get alot of pain just from doing some laps and little exercises in the pool. However in the next month or two I hope to drop some more pounds as it seems to be working so far. So I swim all year around. Don't matter if its raining or sunning or snowing. It is an indoor pool.

Oh that is cool! I would love to have access to an indoor pool. I hope you have better luck with the weight loss than I am having. I have been swimming all summer and have not lost one pound. On the plus side though, I haven't gained weight either and I'm definitely getting in better shape.

I'm sorry that you haven't been able to go lately. Hopefully you can swim again soon. That is great that you have already lost weight.

Aw, you should try swimming again. I used to hardly ever swim, but this summer I have been loving it! Actually, I have been swimming since April or May. I was getting worried that the weather was cooling down and soon I won't be able to swim. But then things heated up and today the water was 82 so I had a nice swim.

Its no particular fun to go swimming by myself, I used to go with my mom. I did consider it before the roomie changed her hours cause there was a pool I drove past, but she's becoming homebased this month anyway. So... I just don't go.

I have to swim in public swimming pools because I don't have my own swimming pool. That means that I swim all year round. A friend did have an open air pool in his garden but his parents put earth over it and made it into a garden. If I had been them I would have put a roof over it to make it into a indoor heated pool. In my home country someone with an open air pool might only able to swim in June, July and August because in the rest of the year the weather would be too cold. I love to travel overseas and so I would in able to swim in from May to October in Southern Europe and in any month of the year in a tropical country. This summer I took my toddler son to Latvia and we went to a water park. It was warm indoors but in the pool that was outdoors it felt really cold.

Out here the public pool is only open in June, July, and August. I remember as a kid we didn't have a pool and I was always wanting to swim in May because it was definitely hot enough. But the public pool is at the high school so they don't open it until school is out. I would love to be able to travel like that sometime and see how different countries are.

Aw, that stinks! I usually don't like to swim once the water gets below 70 degrees. I will on a dare, but I won't stay in for long.
