OMG, I’m excited to report I had my first bi experience last night.
NO, not that kind of bi-experience!
I did one lap of bi-lateral breathing while swimming. Woot Woot!
It was ugly and I’m not lying when I say I drank a ton of water and probably held my breath more than I should. But I did it. I swam, I breathed to my left, I swam, I breathed to my right and then I hit repeat. By the end, I was basically willing myself to get to the side of the pool because it was so ugly and uncomfortable. But I don’t care how ugly it was. It was my first and you never forget your first time!
I definitely have to work on my rhythm because it was not smooth and my instinct kept wanting me to breathe every right stroke. All of that will take time to get used to. But at least now I feel that there’s hope for me. I feel that I can keep making progress and maybe I can actually get this whole swimming thing down.
So while I’m not getting any faster, at least I am making some progress and that really excites me and keeps me going.
Until next time,
