I wrote about swimming for Senior Planet. It has some research about the science of swimming and aging, and bottomline, you really should consider swimming.
Of course, since I’ve taken the job where the cute little fluff ball kittens are kicking my ass I’ve been swimming exactly twice. But that’s because I’ve needed my evenings and days off to edit and fact-check my Blackwell’s Island book. Once that’s done I can swim again, but twice a week, instead of three to five times a week as I did before. (I need some time to do nothing!)
