Today I completed my first unbroken lap using the freestyle stroke. It was a small victory – a visible sign of improvement on just my second day in the pool. My first 10 laps were breast stroke, which I am also getting the hang of. Breathing is the key, and starting with a simple stroke like the breast stroke allows me to concentrate on my breathing and form. Today’s remaining laps were mostly attempts at freestyle, with a couple employing a vigorous backstroke to change things up.
Today’s swim followed about a hour in the weight room, focusing on chest and biceps.
