Swimming and Chlorine
Hi Doc and others,

I have now stopped running and I went for a swim today instead. The pool was a nice temp, but it seemed to have a lot of chlorine in it. My skin also smells very strongly of chlorine after I have showered and soaped myself. Is swimming in such a chlorinated pool bad for my little girl. I am sure that you breathe some chlorine fumes in while you are swimming?

Please get back to me - as then I need tofind another substitue for my running.

I doubt that this will be a problem.
