comment How do I overcome fear of open water swimming?
Not really cognitive behavioral therapy. Compared to other things that can be scary, e.g. downhill skiing in really steep hills, breathing is difficult in itself when freestyle swimming in open water. The counter intuitive thing - based on my experience what you can find written on the topic is to focus on exhaling

comment Time window for fitness tracking - four weeks or longer?
Great input! The rate of adaption you mention feels about right based on my N=1 observation over the last year. I my system, changing from 4 to 6 or 9 etc is no problem. However, I have learned that it is much better to have a rolling window than following calendar weeks/months

comment Can anyone recommend science-based skeptical literature or media about exercise?
A scientific method for individual fitness is more in the area of "participant-observer" than "hypothesis testing". So claims that something works or not might be true for different contexts or individuals. Thus only reading without trying and/or relating to own experience and then evaluating what works for you is of little value.
