Day 20 – Slowly, Slowly, Catchy Fishy

Back to the pool today to continue my (excruciatingly) slow grind towards fully fledged swimmerdom. There was snorkelling lessons in the pool that my youngest son was doing but I thought I was going to get away with it and be the only person in the pool apart from them. Unfortunately when I walked out there was a bunch of fourteen and fifteen year olds looking straight at me, these particular ones being mostly from the soccer team I coach. I swear these little gits are following me around. Anyway, after a few minutes of chit-chat they left me to it and I began slowly making my way up and down the pool.

I alternated swimming lengths of the pool using my own ‘unique’ stroke with time spent trying to work on getting something resembling a freestyle stroke going, trying to breathe but most of all just trying to relax in the pool. Although I’m definitely still taking the tiniest of baby steps I do at last feel like I’m making a little bit of progress.
