I did it. I took a lesson where I was video taped in a swim suit whilst swimming. *faint*
It wasn't as bad as I thought and now I have a tape of me in a swimsuit swimming to keep for the rest of my life. We worked on breathing (my head placement) and my stroke (focusing on pulling with my forearm and keeping my fingers closed whilst pulling). These may sound like little things to you, but I noticed the difference right away.
By the end of the lesson I was crossing the pool faster but using less energy to do it. What the heck? I also have a video to remind me what it's supposed to look like if/when I fall back to my old ways.
I bet you all are expecting to see a clip of me swimming like a pro. Um, no. As much as I love all you peeps in blogland, I really don't want to subject you to Yas flailing around in a pool. Think of how it'll ruin my wonderful career when that gets on Youtube.
