First attempt at swimming

rikby rikJul 13th 2010
I went to the local pool today to try and swim.

Now, I've seen swimmers and triathletes and they swim front crawl. I can do this for one length of the pool and I'm out of breath! I suspect this is a combination of several things on my part: fitness, poor technique and an inability to breathe under water.

My daughter had swimming lessons when she was 8-years old and swam 40 lengths front crawl because she misunderstood the instructions to swim on her back a bit. I was amazed then and I'm even more amazed now. She is now 10 and we're going on holiday in two weeks so I am recruiting her as my swimming coach.

In the meantime I shall learn from YouTube videos.
