I can make it to the end of the pool doing the crawl (you probably know that's the stroke we usually picture as "swimming"), but it's pretty tiring, so I swim a series of four laps - first: crawl to the far end, second: side-stroke back, third: breast stroke, fourth: side-stroke on other side. Today I did that six times in 30 minutes. The first day I was focusing mostly on not getting water up my nose, but I noticed today I could think about good form and work on getting my face in the water more.
They keep the water temperature just perfect - no shock getting in, but not too warm for swimming. My half hour of laps felt really good, and the hot tub afterwards is a lovely reward.
