I had my first swim lesson today! We found out that I suck. The good new is, I can only get better!
We just worked on kicking and breathing today. She asked me at the very beginning if I had problem putting my face underwater, I said no. I was wrong. It was a very strange feeling to exhale underwater. I think it was the pressure against the exhale that bothered me. I don't remember that being so bothersome. I got the hang of it, on and off. Same with kicking. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not. Assigned drills for the week include kicking only and kicking/breathing.
Swimming is definitely going to be my biggest weakness for the triathlon. I need to work even harder than I thought, but I think I'm up for the challenge! I think I'll try to get to the pool again Saturday. We'll see what Liam is up to and whether Mom & Dad can watch him.
