Today my teacher took my noodle. What? She was like, you can swim, just try. I admit I was scared out of my mind but trusted that she knew what she was talking about. Guess what? I can swim! Today I swam about half a lap. I can’t believe it! So, we worked on doing the freestyle.
I really need to practice my breathing. If I can get my breathing together, I could probably swim an entire lap. I also need to get over my fear of going into the deeper end of the pool. As I can see I’m getting to that halfway mark, I know the water is going to get deeper. The anxiety kicks in. I forget to kick, lift my head, and breathe. Tomorrow I’m going back to the pool to practice. Yay!
