- had a great time
- had a great workout
- have CONSIDERABLE room for improvement!
As usual, I have to buy some gear!! I "need" a bathing suit (a "real" swimmer's suit, not a lay-around-the-pool-to-get-a-tan" kind of suit), a swim cap, goggles, and, eventually, a kick board.
I have to say, I was SHOCKED at the cardio work out I got, even not being able to swim very far without stopping. I guess it's just like running....I didn't start out being able to run a mile, even a quarter mile without stopping. But I did build up distance and speed. I'm sure I'll eventually be able to go much farther than I can even imagine going right now. All I have to do is TRAIN!
The hardest part? Taking a gulp of air without also taking in a big gulp of water!

Thanks for stopping in, come again soon!
