What a busy week! I have finally arrived back in Regina as I had spent last Saturday until Thursday in Banff, and Calgary, where I was in attendance for my granny’s 95th birthday celebration. At the beginning of the week I used this video for some great motivation. In the video it states that 50% of people are unable to swim. I know that by the end of this project, I will be one of the 50% that can swim.
Since I knew I was going to be on the road I had to strategically plan my hotel to ensure that I would still be able to practice my swimming technique. Here is the outdoor pool I swam in. Due to my very busy schedule I had to go swimming as soon as the pool opened at 7:00 Am. Thankfully the weather cooperated and I was able to swim everyday except Wednesday as it was pouring rain and wind gusts were recorded as high as 100 KM/H.
Since I have began swimming, I have found it much easier to swim on my back. Since I was on my own, with no lifeguard present, I figured this would be the most appropriate stroke to work on. I found this video very useful to teach myself the basics.
Now that I am back in Regina and will have lifeguards who are present, I am looking forward to continuing on my backstroke while also implementing some more work on my front strokes.
