    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...

    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...

    Just had a great swim at my local gym/swimming

    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 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...

    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 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...

    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.

    I swim quite a lot. Most nights in fact.

    Maybe being Pisces is the reason! I have a daughter who is Pisces and she swims too. She beats the socks off me in front crawl. But she can't catch me in breaststroke.
