    There is something I adore

    so much about being in water. I love the way it feels, the way it smells and the way it sounds as you move around in it. I am determined to one day have an indoor pool so I can have a daily morning swim before starting my day. Such a refreshing way to wake up.

    The water feels so nice on my skin.

    It's as if I'm in a whole other world. I love keeping fit in the pool, but I also enjoy the occasional skinny dip at midnight

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

    winter sun comes in through the pool windows and hits the bottom, throwing an array of caustics...turning the pool into a magical world. Everyone's body becomes marbled with light. I slipped into a daydream while doing my laps...

    Today is a good day to find a body of water

    and immerse myself. Being in water makes me happy and always has. I have no problem walking straight in, or even diving in, cold water or warm. There is a release I feel as soon as I lift my feet off the rocks. A release of cares, a cleansing of sorts. Buoyancy is freeing...

    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...

    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 am somewhat of a professional swimmer.

    I do swimming competitively and have been doing so for 19 years. I love it, it's one of my truest passions. Not only does it keep me in shape, but it keeps my mind active and gives me confidence. It's hard work, but it it's all worth it in the end, especially when placing in a...

    That moment in fly when you inhale

    and your arms are just clearing the water and you can feel your body lock into the whip of the kick, and you know you have got power! I hit a miestone today with 250 fly, no breaks, and solid form to the very end! Rawrrrr! *grins*

    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...

    It's been a while since I have swim on the

    ocean. I remember that the last time I went kind of deep and the feeling of going underwater, without looking, was amazing. Wanting for summer to come so I can go to the beach!!

    I adore swimming, it's been apart of my life

    for around 11 years now, I love to face and the feeling I get when I'm in the pool, it's such a rush! I've recently discovered how much the sport means to me, throughout my education I've been bullied and made fun of a numerous amount of times that still goes on to this day, but...

    I swam with a school of small fish today.

    ...they were curious and surrounded me before collapsing into a tight silvery mass and darting away. I dove under the water looking up at its mercurial underside, gliding down and down on my back, rotating slowly... watching light shafts enter and disperse into caustics... I...

    Never swam competitively

    but rather just enjoy swimming in my own (or a friends) pool. I find it so relaxing and enjoyable. Especially at night

    Another 3K today, and 3.

    2K on Monday. As soon as I got in on Monday, my shoulders and arms announced they'd pretty much rather be anywhere else than with me in the pool. Today I fought the water. Haven't decided who won. I did some sprints: the weights have given me a fair bit of power, but stamina...

    Seems a bit contradictory to say I love swimming

    when I can't swim, but I love it nonetheless.

    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...

    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 just got out of the pool,

    it was quiet an experience: Me and my sister just got out bathing suits on and We were walking to the pool. My sister was playing with her dolls, and I was saying I didn't want to jump in, even though I did, and my sister pushed me in. It was a little chilly. I got out and...

    So I started swimming again this month,

    after a pause of an year or so. I have to say, its as absolutely amazing as it ever was! Not just during the swim, but after it too; there is pleasant feeling of exaustion and a job well done! I learned to swim at the sea; my father was a very good and active swimmer in his...
