I would like to start swimming laps as part of a fitness regime. Special snowflake details below the fold.

I'm in my mid-30s and I already walk two miles a day most of the week. Swimming is one of the forms of exercise that feels the least like exercise to me. I respond well to goals and structure, but I also know that I sometimes set goals for myself that are a little too ambitious, and I get frustrated.
I'd like to work up to swimming a mile a day three or four days a week, but I also think that might be a lot to do right out of the gate. There doesn't seem to be a Couch to 5K program for swimming, so I'm asking here: What's a good goal to start with that will get me in the pool and keep me going back, and won't frustrate me too much?
