Wow. Okay, so I’m taking a swimming class in prep for my pending tri attempt. Honestly, I’ve gotten decent at the freestyle. I manage to keep my head underwater for most of the stroke. I breathe out thru my nose so I don’t get a pool full of water in my nasal passages. I can tilt my head a little bit to get some air. Tho I do need to work on the path my hand goes thru the water, I can confidently say that I’ll probably make it in my swim. Breaststroke not bad. Backstroke I can do.
But today we tried to learn butterfly, and man oh man. it is hard. Dolphin kick? um… yeah. I just didn’t get it. Your arm motion is supposed to be exactly the same as freestyle, but I find the timing of the kick and the pull to be a bit weird. I guess I can safely say that I suck in the butterfly.
