    The entire stretch of those two hours,

    a meditation, a ritual. I greet the lifeguards, I pour coffee. I walk into the locker room, I undress, hang my stuff, change into my swimsuit. Into the shower, wet my hair, on goes the cap, goggles....towel into the sauna room....Grab the board, pull buoy..... if lucky, a whole...

    I want to write about a friend whom I do not

    really know very well, but appreciate nevertheless. He is much younger than I, and is quiet and insightful, hangs out in the pool nearly every day, and sometimes gives me very good tips. A few weeks back I was trying to learn to swim butterfly. He waited until I got to the end...

    Just had a great swim at my local gym/swimming

    complex this evening. I am quite fortunate to have one that consists of two pools, one indoor and one outdoor. Both pools are heated but the outdoor one is something like 5 degrees lower than the indoor and trust me, you will notice that difference! Now usually, the only way to...

    I sometimes feel like I know what it may be like

    for a bird, to fly and to feel the resistance of the air currents, and how its wings are like blades, how it can pivot and propel itself forward, with the whipping movement of its entire body.... Sometimes water itself feels almost muscular, the way it interacts with the body...

    I had such a fun time at the pool the other day.

    Giving a group of men in their 40's glimpses of my body.

    I love to go skinning dipping in our swimming

    pool, nude sunbathing, and having BBQs with my family and our many friends. Also, we love to host nudist parties almost year round with others.

    When in my in-ground home swimming pool,

    I love swimming laps and back and forth from side to side. I love when my kids are in the pool too. They certainly enjoy swimming between my legs and touching me. At home pool parties, I love to stand against the pool wall and chat with others.

    I love swimming during the summer months in a

    pool or at the beach. It is great exercise for me and keeps my figure in great shape. When swimming I wear either a bikini or a one piece suit.

    I swam in the lake today.

    It is pure freedom, no black lines, no walls, just me and open water. Months and months of near-daily workouts in the pool have paid off, I am able to go the distance. A ring of mountains, azure skies, and beautiful, clean water. Except for the motorboat fuel I tasted a few...

    Summer is by far my favorite season of the year

    because I absolutely LOVE to go swimming :) Not only that but school is out and I can go swimming as much as I want :) I learned to swim at an early age and it's difficult to keep me out of the water during the summertime.

    There is this soothing sensations

    Has anyone ever tried losing weight via

    swimming? I feel like it's impossible... and being overweight I need to lose weight, I'm going swimming (crawl, freestyle) 2-3 times per week for at least 30mins each and usually stay for 45mins. But it doesn't seem to work. In addition swimming makes hungry like no other sport...

    I did my first 100 fly yesterday.

    Incredible and explosive. I am in love with this stroke. That feeling when your arms clear the water with ease and symmetry and you know you are flying and you just caught that perfect breath of air and then your head dips and the body follows like a wave and arms extend to...

    I swam with a school of small fish today.

    I have always loved a good swim.

    Not only is it fantastic exercise and you can feel your muscles burn, but the water is cooling you and soothing you! You never feel so hot and sweaty! Every other sport makes you feel nasty and you smell nasty. Ugh! Unfortunately, I've damaged my rotator cuff. I had a...

    I love to be in the water.

    I scuba dive, I go tubing down the river, I swim in the pool, the lake, the ocean. Not only is swimming a necessary life skill, it is also relaxing and fun.

    I used wear shiny speedos at the pool

    when I was younger and I used to cut the linning out of them so they were more revealing!

    The water feels so nice on my skin.

    Swimming is a way of

    not only letting me release all my stress but as a way of relieving my mind. Plus, its fun and the feeling of being so lightweight mesmerizes me! I always feel great after having a nice swim :)

    This time of year...in the afternoon the low

    First workout of the season!
