Front crawl and all that guff…

Front crawl is the stroke, I struggle with most. Nothing seems to work, properly, together. I get one bit right and everything else is “slightly off”.

It looks so easy when others swim front crawl, mine looks a bit of a mess. So we’re (myself and my tutor) are working on my front crawl.

Yesterday’s lesson was tough, but at the same time, good. My tutor J took the time to swim underwater, alongside me, to point out my faults, things I need to work on.

It’s frustrating at times, I am sure it’s frustrating for my tutor as well, as we go over the same things and it doesn’t quite work. Again!

I have awoken this morning, my hip is really aching, from the training drills, I did. Not, may I add, the Black and Decker kind, we’re not putting pictures up in the pool!

Sometimes I do want to give in, I can swim now, but I want to swim well, be able to swim distances, enjoy it and keep myself fit and active and ultimately, raise money for charities.
