    I would love to swim

    if I wasn't allergic to chorine. I know there are some pools with salt water. I will have to try that sometime.

    A friend told me not long ago about a certain

    mechanism in our brain that is commonly referred to as "central governor"... This excited me much, since the idea of exploring my potential as a physical being is very appealing to me. Yesterday I had an experience that was unlike any other, and I would like to write about it...

    just had the best swim in my life!

    !!! after taking a day off yesterday, I swam great! and most importantly I had some major improvements in my breathing, seeing yourself improve is by far the best feeling I ever had!! it felt weird but awesome walking out of the pool with a dumb smile on my face. :)

    I would so love to be swimming in a lake right

    now, having the gently coolness soothe my hot skin. Swimming under a moonlit sky that is surrounded by a million stars. I would let the waters darkness envelop me as swam within cool grasp

    I go to swimming club.

    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 was swimming before I learned how to walk,

    as a toddler I was in swim classes and by age 6 I was already in competitive swimming and at 13 I started waterpolo. I cant really stand working out for long period of time on land feeling out of breath and sweaty. I can swim 2 miles and feel amazing all said and done. Dry land...

    I have been swimming

    since I was 4 years old and I love swimming as much as possible. For me it's the best workout I can have. I like taking my little brother with me sometimes and I'm teaching him how to swim. He's doing really well and he's so cute when he's doing it on his own. He looks so proud...

    O my God.... today was the toughest day!

    ! Did a lot of hand and legs movement exercises... It was tiring yet funny!(^_^) Then coach told me to put my body stressfree and relaxed... I did try it and it was so easy to practice by putting myself free in the water..:)

    My summer fitness regimes involve lots of tennis

    and lots of swimming. Swimming while enjoyable is also an extreme fitness regime. Little competitions with your friends make it a valuable pursuit socially too!

    Since I was a child I loved to swim,

    but no one taught me how to swim. My elders stopped me saying I was too young to swim but one day I jumped into pool following my uncle. I was 7 at that time. No one was expecting me to do it, waaoo what a feeling it comes when water pushes u back and u float on it. I had no...

    Not the greatest technical

    or even a very fast swimmer but enjoy swimming laps at the rec. pool. It's 25 yds. I aim for 5,000 yards a week, spread over five days. I combine this with some aerobic water exercise and it seems to help.

    ever since i was a child there's never been anything more freeing in the world.  it makes no difference how deep the water is, if it's surrounded by nature and filled with nature, or if it's held in cement or rubber ... there is NOTHING more relaxing! my first experience...

    Since I began swimming this summer my main

    focus has been on learning proper form, not necessarily speed - this will come in time, I am sure. Freestyle is such a lovely stroke. It is getting easier and easier to move, breathe, pull, push...My confidence is growing daily with each practice. But I have noticed that my...

    I keep pushing. Every single day.

    I want to be faster, stronger, leaner, I want more balance, I want huge lung capacity, I want the least resistance and the most propulsion, I feel greedy, I want more. I wish so much I had a great coach. Why am I swimming besides the obvious benefits to my mental and...

    There's nothing that swimming can't fix.

    I find when I am feeling alone I can hit the pool do laps and feel the feelings wash off me. I love the way the water glides off my skin. How powerful I feel as I get quicker and quicker. I love the silence and hearing my air go in and out of my body. I love being nearly...

    I don't know how to swim

    but I love acting like I can swim. I get into lay out position and practice even though I get no where lol. I can go 2 feet when I swim. I swim like a turtle. The same way they move their body that how I swim. I can't swim like paddling like a dog.

    I never learned to swim. I could get by on my back just fine, but as for putting my face in the water without holding my nose...it wasn't going to happen. I always felt silly, but eventually I just got used to it and assumed I would never learn to swim. This summer my kids and I...

    I'm going to try to swim 1000 KM this year.

    I figure 3-4 KM a day, 5-6 days a week, plus a few longer swims, 50 weeks should be just feasible.
