So my friend did agree to coach me. Then we both went off and got new jobs for the summer. She worked on a ‘remote’ island and I just turned into a workaholic. We didn’t see each other all summer really…

This stroke has become my every day swim stroke when I go swimming. I asked my daughter to critique it, and she said that it looks good.
It’s really quite an elegant swimming stroke, but quite exhausting. 21 months ago
So I asked my friend and she enthusiastically agreed. In fact, she really wants to teach me how to swim. I know the basics but…she’ll check everything I’m doing and help make me a better swimmer. She has a membership at the Y and wants me to get a month pass ($21) that gets me access to everything as well as additional lessons.
Which is another thing, who new the Y was such a great place…guess I’m a little behind the crowd, eh? 23 months ago
My children are taking swimming lessons this spring and I’ve been taking them to the pool on weekends to help them practice what they’ve learned. My son and daughter were both quite behind the other children with my son actually grabbing the swimming instructor because he was scared of the water. Since visiting the pools my son has floated on his back for an entire minute and my daughter swam 10 lengths of a hotel pool. After they have swam for an hour, they get to sit at the side of the pool while I attempt a few laps using the butterfly stroke. I can get the hand motions, but I’m still having difficulty moving my legs. I also noticed that I’m really pulling my head out of the water to breath which causes extra splashing when my face crashes down, as well as extra effort with my arms. Two lengths and I’m exhausted, but I’m determined to get this stroke down pat. 1 year ago
