I've just been swimming for the first time in several months. As I rather suspected, my strength and burst speed is still fairly decent (due to going to the gym quite a bit), but my endurance is way down. After a bit over a kilometre I'd had enough. It was good though, and I think I'm going to have to resume going regularly.

On an unrelated topic, I picked up a copy of Dead or Alive 4 for the Xbox 360 this morning. I'm not sure quite what to make of it yet. It's probably very good, but I'm not yet comfortable with the combat system, which is very different to the Tekken/Soul Calibur style. The graphics are a slightly odd mix as well. The backgrounds are probably the prettiest I've yet seen in a video game, and some of the costumes are amazing. However, (and probably deliberately), the character's skin is still pretty much flat shaded. This gives a slightly odd anime style to them. I'll give a more detailed review later.
