Karlie's Swimming Journey: Week 9

29 September 2020

I can’t believe there is only one week left of this term, and two weeks until Christmas!

This week we worked on all three swimming strokes (backstroke, freestyle and breaststroke) with drills to focus on our breathing, kicking and our arm circles. I think I have graduated from swimming like a beluga whale to possibly a turtle – slow but a little more controlled.

We were assessed by Vesna and learnt what level to enrol in next term. Enrolments are now open to everyone! I will be enrolling in the Adult Technique class next year. One day I will swim as gracefully as the majestic dolphin!

Not only is my fitness improving, but I have also noticed a dramatic difference in my chronic pain from a previous back injury, which has been AMAZING! I also feel more confident in the water and am ready to tackle a beach filled summer in the sunny Bay of Plenty!

If you sign up to Term 1 Swimming Lessons before Christmas you will go into the draw to win a $400 Prezzy Card! How good is that?

Classes fill up quickly, so if you would like to give swimming a try, contact the friendly BaySwim team. I hope I have convinced you to start your swimming journey next year!
