The Reality of Swimming

The Reality of Swimming

I’m going to write about one of my favourite subjects, swimming. 

Mainly, why is swimming hard? 

I’ve been back to the pool today and swimming is hard. 

When you do it properly, swimming is hard.

For everybody who’s looking for that magic bullet, if you are doing it correctly. 

Then, there are no easy ways out. 

You have got to swim, today I only did 50s, but my arms and back are really telling me that they are hurting now, because I did it properly.

I concentrated on my stroke, my place, press, and push, and made sure that I did the whoosh at the end.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you need to be on one of our swimming courses, because this is what we teach.

I might not look pretty, but I get the job done, and at the end of the day, you need to be out of that pool, ready to be able to tackle your bike in the best possible shape that you can.

Don’t let anybody fool you saying, buy this, buy that, go on this course, I’m going to make swimming easy. 

It’s not. 

If you’re doing it properly, it hurts.
