I love to swim but only outside on a hot and sunny day. Unfortunately, living in England this means I have to wait until I'm on holiday somewhere more exotic. I really don't like swimming indoors (perhaps with the exception of a luxury heated pool at a spa). However, I think it's really important especially for kids so I encourage my husband to take my toddler on a regular basis and I stay home and relax!
Especially being 'dumped' in the surf as a kid! I would stand up, laugh my head off, & go in for more, according to family!
Have never had a fear of the water, which I think would be terrible.
Was School, & Open Champion, two years, in a row, for the four strokes!
Was House, & Interschool Swimming Captain.
Set a record for 50m Breastroke at 14, & it took 18 years' to be broken, & only then by 1/10th of a second!
My children were taught to swim as early as possible.
My cousin was a champion Water Polo player.
Just swim for exercise now, but should look at applying for Masters swimming. It's never too late!
