Data Entry Marathon....

Maybe this is to train for my mental toughness....4000 entries need to be made into a inventory database. Spent 4 hr last night doing it. Should be done by today. I am close to half way mark.

The community opened at 6:30 am. Today I thought I could have the pool all to myself. Then I could do some drills.

Argh...there were grandpas and grannys. More than the usual time when I go to the pool (around 8 am). I did some leg drills. Left leg still kicking too stiff.

Maybe I am too fat, my legs were dragging in the water with the pull bouy. The pull bouy is too small for me. I must have looked quite silly with my legs dragging in the water like an anchor :). Wait a minute, fat floats. So that means I am not fat. I am just a rock :)

swimming is hard my friend... it's not like running, or cycling, i think of it more like learning how to golf... both of them involve learning a complicated stroke... keep at it -- don't get discouraged!!

Try to 'swim downhill', and the pull buoy will float your legs up to the top. It feels completely unnatural at first.

Swimming is tough - I try and then nearly drown each time. Why is not so easy to breathe water?

Fat?? Don't say that...you make people who have a lot more fat than you feel bad (like me) :P

Fat? Please.

I concur with ultraclyde. Try swimming downhill - try to keep your upper body down. Your legs will come up. I did that last time and it saved about 2 mins in 1500m.

rocks can swin with enough current to push them along, don't give up, you'll get it. btw in another life time (when I was a lifeguard) I saw several people nearly drown... some were fat and some weren't, I don't think it matters. look at how big whales are :)

Maybe that is why I was able to pick up on the swimming, fat floats. I guess that is one good thing about being a Clydesdale.

Try pushing you face towards the bottom of the pool. That will press your "buoy" downward and subsequently raise your legs. Worked for me, might give it a try. Good luck!

I know people who are so muscular they can't float! So it's got to be muscle and not fat.
