Jeff, the best advice I can give is to hook up with Mel Goldstein and his Indy Masters club.

I think Rob has made the point---Mel Goldstein and the Indy Masters Club!

Depending on how in shape you feel you are, maybe try some of the workouts posted in the discussion forums here before you try a practice --just to get used to the water again.

Swimming with a team again is way fun, but can be a reality check if you have not been in the water for a while...

Just have fun no matter what you choose!
