    I don't know...it's something about the feeling

    I get when I glide through the water. I swim 3 times a day in the summer, and I love it. Call me crazy, but I like being underwater more than above. Everything in the water is just so clear and graceful. I love swimming.

    It's Been Years

    I love to swim. As a kid I spent every summer outside in our swimming pool, from morning until far after dark. Went through a lot of sunscreen! As I got older, I grew more self-conscious about my body, so I stopped swimming. It's been about 7 years since I swam anywhere. I miss...

    I try to make it to the pool,

    every day, and swim laps for a straight hour. I look forward to stretching every part of my body while I float before and after my swim. I am truly a water person. I think the only form of exercise I really enjoy, on land, is sex... lol. Today it snowed. It's April and it...

    Pretty Sure I Was Supposed To Be A Fish...

    Ever since I was a kid I loved swimming. We'd always go to the beach frequently during the summer as a family and spend the whole day there. Then we got a pool and it seemed like every day I'd be in there for hours on end. We'd have family and friends over and cook out and it was...

    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.

    Favorite Form Of Exercise!

    Says it all in my username, LOL. I sure wish I was faster, though, and--um--as trim as I was a few years back. I need to drop about 20 and get back HARDCORE to the pool. I want to work-up to at least do a half Ironman, and would love to knock it out of the park in the swim!

    I did have fear of swimming

    because of traumatic events. I started loving to swim when I was just learning to swim alone it did take way much courage to just learn to breathe underwater. I'm glad I can swim now♥

    I love so swim it is the best exercise it's

    both cardio and resistance training , it's low impact (really no impact) you can do it no mater what shape you are in , and it's highly measurable, distance / speed/ duration/ and strokes if you have a device . I always feel great after a good swim.

    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
