Ian Thorpe should not be scared

My rehabilitation for my elbow injury has started and I’ve joined the local pool. This is the first time that I’ve done lap swimming for 10 years. I’m reasonably fit, but I don’t think my swimming is going to strike fear into the heart of the Australian Olympic Squad.
What I do notice is that swimming is great for my elbow and shoulder, but boy howdy, is it sore now. Stretch those muscles, ligaments and all the other squishy bits. Ow, ow, ow.
