I’ve now swum 1,179 lengths and I’ve finished up to Get Toned session 23.
I actually did four sessions this week, including an “extra” session on Monday because it and the session on Sunday were quite short and I wanted the exercise.
How’s it been going with swimming, you ask?
I’m really pleased that I now feel really pretty competent at all three strokes in my repertoire. I’ve been doing a lot of slow swimming of back stroke and in that mode I’ve not been swamping myself in water – always a good feeling. The last two sessions called for some harder paced back stroke and I discovered that I was back to getting a lot of water over my face. However, I am more at ease with it, not thinking I’m about to drown! At the same time, I’m really getting the hang of the 3-stroke breathing in front crawl. It makes the work in skill development seem worthwhile.
I’m busy next week so probably only three sessions.
