Today we are celebrating small successes.
This morning I was back in the pool, practicing my Total Immersion drills. I was focussing on “skating” drills and, for the first time since I started working on my swimming technique, I understood what it felt like to swim downhill. This may not sound like a big thing but, part way along one of my lengths, everything clicked and I suddenly felt like I was heading downhill.
I was really pleased with this, as it shows the progress I have made since trying my first drills back in November. It is also an important skill to master and should hopefully help to improve my swimming technique.
And to celebrate this minor milestone (and because this blog has been a little lacking in pictures recently) I will leave you with a small picture.
