Hi,

been out of swimming other than just for leisure for a fair while. i'm getting back into it very slowly. had a few bouts of bronchitis and general fitness level has dropped so my breathing is a bit f****d.
I can swim lengths without too much hassle swam a lot and was a member of clubs when i was a nipper.
Just wondering if anyone has any advice on reps and sets for building up fitness. Starting from scratch as just over another bout . Hoping that swimming will help strengthen the old lungs again.
also does anyone know if there is a masters club in or near clonmel? checked swim Ireland and looks like Thurles and then Cork or Limerick all of which are a bit of a trip. Thurles is probably the closest of the 3. can't find anything in Waterford either.
Does anyone know what standard the group in Thurles is?

cheers
