Conquer the Pool — :38, :49, 1:02


Those are not Bible verses. They are my swim times this morning.  So this was the first time Coach Corey timed me. It was so sad. Anyway here is a beginning point. 38 seconds freestyle, 49 seconds back, 1:02 breast. I refuse to attempt the fly. Did I mention that these sad times were for 25 yds? Well now I know what I have to do and every day that I am in the pool I will do my best to improve these times. Maybe I won’t be competitive in the near future but I will get there. Swimming is in my blood now.

Conquer the Pool – Day Six & Seven


So yesterday was the backstroke. Hmm…. Not too coordinated yet. I get on my back and start kicking and when I look up I’m basically in the same place. Lol! So I took advice from some of the team members and the coach and began to work on my kick. I still have a long way to go. Today they were working on the butterfly. Really? I can’t get my head wrapped around that yet. So while they did that I concentrated on my backstroke kick. I used my flippers but concentrated on making sure that I used my whole leg. I did 14 laps with the flippers (not too hard) then I did 12 more old backstroke and side stroke. Felt pretty good. Won’t get back until Monday. I’ll miss it!

I love this pool!!
