Swim – FAIL

09/07/2010 at 1:45 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Due to one thing and the other (and rather too many of the other) I didn’t go swimming on Wednesday or Thursday morning. So it was on Thursday evening, with a colossal hangover, that I dragged myself off to Usual Pool for a run and a swim, keen to try out my new leg action. And guess what? I can’t do it. I can’t propel myself forwards at all by bringing my legs up and out in a circle. According to my swimming teacher, I’m not catching the water as I bring my legs round, so I’m not creating any resistance to push me forwards in the water. But knowing this doesn’t seem to help. And it’s very difficult to practice with or without a float. After a bit, I realised I wasn’t getting any exercise, so I reverted to swimming with my Old Legs but concentrating on incorporating the arm tips my teacher had given me, ie point downhill and do a very shallow scoop.

I have another lesson today but, right at this minute, I wish I’d never started it.
