    It's great to just get in the water

    and let all your feelings out while your doing laps... My mind wonders but it's ok because I "just keep swimming"(as Dory would say). The only let down is finding a peaceful time to go swimming because I don't like going when it's crowded with classes etc. but when I do go I...

    I love to go swimming several days a week.

    I enjoy doing laps in my pool. This is relaxing to me and am in the pool as much as I can be.

    I love swimming. It takes things off my mind

    and it's very relaxing. I used to be a swimmer in high school. Now that those days are over I like to go lap swimming. It's a great exercise for me.

    I love to swim year round.

    I have a pool at home to swim and relax in with family and friends. I love to swim a few laps when I am in my pool. I have a friend that has an indoor pool and I go swimming there too. I have the best of both worlds. I love to go skinny dipping when swimming and playing...

    I love swimming, it's exciting

    and makes me feel free. During competitions your heart is pounding the whole time until it's your turn. Your step onto the block and you here," take your mark" you bend down. You here the beep signaling you to jump. It's a reflex to dive in. You the the cold waster engulf you...

    I am pretty good at swimming (good enough to

    swim in the fast lane). I swim because I like the sport, and there is another special motivation for me. That is to look at fit girls swim in front of me, so I can look at their shaking booties.

    So Glad I Learned.

    I never caught on at primary school. The other children would kick off into the water and I would still be by the side of the pool unable to comprehend it and crying. It wasn't until one of my friends invited me to some swimming classes outside of school that I finally learned...

    I learned to swim in the river

    that crossed the village where I was born. Since then swimming has been my favourite sport. I like the fact you are on your own, no team, no props or gadgets, just your body against water. I taught my kids to swim very early but none has inherited my passion about swimming. Now...

    I used to love snorkeling

    and diving. Still do, just don't have much desire in the New England coastal waters. I guess I got spoiled in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea. So, I've taken to the pool at the nearby YMCA to swim laps. It's dead boring compared to swimming in an ocean. I remember days...

    Being Full Of Life, Being Free

    Imagine birds at the air, they feel good aren't they? Same as in the water, I feel free, full of life. Each dive has glimpse to a colorful world of the ocean/seas. Since I was young swimming and diving became my life, since I was young till now most things I can remember are bad...

    Hi everyone. I love swimming

    but I don't swim well. I notice how some people can have a conversation while treading water and yet I can barely keep my head above water. What's with the floating trick?

    Swimming is seriously my favorite thing to do.

    I've always loved being in the water and it's always been my happy place. When I was younger I would spend 8+ hours in the pool. I also swim competitively and it's the best workout/thrill/sport/pass time ever. I just wish I was a mermaid sometimes haha.
