Well, I'm making slow but steady progress. I've been in the pool twice a week for 3 weeks or so now. Started on very basic drills and now progressed to the sticking the head face down in the water drill. (Not the technical name I know)
The drill is coming along now, compared to absolute blind panic which it was at first!! I'm feeling more comfortable whilst submerged and I do have the downhill feeling, so I must be doing something right.
Trying to add a new drill into the mix every week. People are even asking me about why I'm doing drills and the benefits of it. Big mistake thinking I'm an expert
I'm up at 6 am and off to the pool. Beginners drills for me. I've been using the swimsmooth website as well. I find it really useful, esp with the graphics they have on how your body position should be. Now just to put it into practice.
I'm starting from scratch at the minute. I'm just reading total immersion to grasp the theory, then practicing the drills in the pool. I'm just concentrating on these at the minute, the 'proper swimming' is what will come later.
The other guys will be able to give you some good technical advice, I'll just offer support!!
