Pool Work. I use to hate it. No, I use to dread it. I can remember when I first started this journey and I went to swim the first time. I jumped in and bearly could make it to the end of the lane. I felt like I was drowning with every stroke.
How things change with practice!
This morning I got in around 1600-1800 meters. I feel comfortable in the pool now. Getting in 100 meters is pretty easy now. Doing 300 repeats is even pretty easy. I got in 2 500 meter repeats today plus some 100 repeats. I feel more comfortable and stronger every day I put in the pool. I can pull myself through the water, I feel myself grabbing the water and pulling myself along. I now have a great hip snap with each stroke. Although my speed is still slower than it should it is getting faster. Practice does make perfect.
I will try and get up to Colorado Springs next month and join in on a Masters Swim to see how I am doing compared to other swimmers. That should give me an idea how I am progressing. At the same time having someone look at my form would not hurt any.
