Growing up in WA state, I didn’t have much exposure to pools. I can keep myself afloat and get from one end of a pool to the next, but it’s not pretty. I want to learn how to efficiently make the most of my strokes in the water. 1 day ago

This year, I want to take a semi-private swim class. Me, another student, teacher. It was difficult for me to find someone to take the class with me but I have a person & a potential back up. Today, I called the teacher and they’ve decided not to teach during the evening this summer. Next, I need to call the Y to see about connecting with a different teacher. 5 days ago

and got into the pool, almost every day for past 2-3 days.
I learned it and know some basics yet needed to brush up and get recomfortable. Once it gets warm, I plan to go everyday in the AM before breakfast :D
The kickboard is great, but I know that soon I will be graduating from it. I have only been practicing in 3-4 feet of water..I will do it there again until I get comfortable and more happy and ready for the next level.
The best part is enjoying the journey and where I am and slowly building up to my goal. I want to swim the whole length using kickboard (I did it a few years back at age 18 even at 6-7ft of water ), and then slowly practice my technique to go whole way freestroke. But so far, I want to go freestroke in 3-4 ft and be comfortable making turns ,and navigating the water without standing up :D. 2 months ago
I can swim and float… but only in a swimming pool with a depth that my toes can touch. I am afraid of deep water and swimming in the open sea.. but I figure.. this is a skill I need to learn if I want to travel more. 4 months ago
