hi Matwitt - youre the same weight and the same height as me when i started out nearly 2 years ago, It wont be the the loss of fat that makes you quicker or slower itll more likely to be the increased aerobic fitness that will enable you to swim longer and more effortlessly which should in turn make you faster or at least in better shape when you hit the bike. Oh and i wasnt broad shouldered and had to lose nearly a half a bloke to resemble anything like fit ish, plod away and itll all come good, just dont ask me for dietary or training advice

Much appreciated Doner. My worry really is that Ill get slower as I get thinner as Ill have less intergrated flotation!

The first thing I learned was that Swimming is hard, because unlike other stuff where you can slow down when youre tired, when you get tired, you drown.
