Yes, after spending $40 on swimming shorts, I have been more regular in the pool. Try to dip in 4 times a week, and spend 40-45 mins per swim session.
I must say, that my strokes are improving, am getting more powerful on my strokes, getting faster (especially the last two swim sessions). What I have still not been able to do is to flip after completing a lap. Breathing is improving, but yet not there.
8 months of swim break, and 3 weeks into the pool, this ain’t no bad !!
Anyways, sharing a swimming lane. Its always tough for me to share the lane. Fear of hitting the co-swimmer, or blocking
his way, or going to the extreme side so as to enter the other lane, has been there. I have learnt two things here-
1) If you swim with a slower swimmer in the same lane, you are better off to get more of the lane. However you need to be cautious of his swimming style.
2) If you swim with a faster swimmer in the same lane, you need not be cautious of his swimming style, or hands hitting you, because they take care of it :). However, they tend to occupy the lane most of the time, as you are slow.
Till I swim………
