Gaining Swim Confidence
Wednesday, February 02, 2011
I had my third swim lesson tonight. It went really well!
Week 1 - total of 600 yards, longest swim (w/o fins) of 100 yards
Week 2 - total of 700 yards, longest swim (w/o fins) of 150 yards
Week 3 - total of 750 yards, longest swim (w/o fins) of 200 yards... a personal best!!!
And, we did the 200 yards in about 5 minutes! I was thinking the 500 meters I'll be swimming would take me 30 minutes. Nope! I don't know how long it'll take, but I'm looking at more like 15-18 minutes! I can handle that! Of course, I still need to improve my stroke AND stamina. But, I'm working on it! And gaining confidence with every swim!
