Swimming. What a wonderful activity! I love it. I missed it. I went for my second swim today. I spent a half hour in the “slow lane” trying out the front crawl, backstroke, and kicking while hanging on to the float board. I didn’t keep count of the number of times I swam up and down the lane, but I did manage 34 minutes. Not bad for a noobie!
I borrowed a book at the library about swim drills. Youtube has some swim drill videos too. I need to improve my swimming since it’s been so long. I am not used to keeping my head in the water and then remembering to come up for air while coordinating my arms to stroke forward. If I have to I will sign up for lessons!
What’s even better is my SBC has decided he wants to go swimming with me. Yeah, company! What would be a treat is if our building would repair the pool on the roof. Until the weather warms up considerably, it’s a cold damp walk from the community centre to our home.
Our cycling team blog is slowly slowly taking shape. I took photos of almost all of the team members this weekend, and signed us up as “authors” to post news and pictures. Hopefully, as the weather gets better, we’ll have more news and photos to share. And I’m hoping to take some training videos of us!
