I’ve now swum 804 lengths.
I’ve finished half the programme and want to repeat Get Toned session 16 before I move on.
I did only 2 sessions this week. Even though I am spoiled by the swimming pool on the doorstep and warm temperatures, I find myself easily put off by the rain! I like swimming in the sunshine – it turns out. I shall have to push through and get used to swimming in the dark and in inclement weather as the year moves towards winter.
I repeated session 15 and found it easier than the first time. The back stroke I did in that session and in the second one that I swam in the week went much better than it had been going. I am quite pleased really since I have not given up trying to swim it properly and I am getting better. It is still definitely my least favourite stroke – that I can swim, that is: butterfly I can’t even contemplate!
I think that breathing every three strokes for front crawl is at the edge of my stamina or ability at the moment. I experimented not doing that and found the whole session much easier. I think I’ll work on that during skill development but not worry about it too much during main sessions. To that end, I did an adapted version of session 16, doing front crawl skill development, rather than breast stroke. As a result, I need to repeat session 16 properly before moving on.
So, off into the rain I must go!
