blub bloob blib!

Translation from drowning: Swimming going good!


Still swimming been 3 times this week and am up to two 20 min sets of laps, taking about 1 min per lap, yea I am slow...

I was having problems getting into the motion of swimming and turning you head to get air. But have solved that holding your breath for the full length of the pool works great!

Just kidding I have a mask and snorkel and swimming with the snorkel makes it a little easier and I don't keep getting a lung full of water.

One thing I have noticed is that I don't go as fast as I did when I was a kid and the extra weight that I have makes it harder to tread water. I have kinda a weird body makeup. I have most of my weight on the gut, but my legs are relatively fat free from biking all the time. So the legs are much more dense and sink while the top part of me floats better. So when floating my feet always sink and my head bobs up, unfortunately it appears that my buoyancy level puts the water level at my forehead :(

Progress meeter: 6 lbs.

Ya, good going & keep it up. I love the using a snorkel when swimming... allows me to stop concentrating on breathing so much & work on the body movement to get from end to end. :)
