Hummmmm! a feeling I got when I reached the swimming pool yesterday morning ready to jump in to swim laps of my local pool.

I really got into swimming sometime in 2001/02 and did some competitions in 02 & 03 but when I moved back to Sydney there were no local pools which had a creche so swimming was put down to once a week and I started boxing. The I got pregnant and stopped it all after some bleeds. I re joined the Gym last year but I found it really hard walking on a treadmill not even the lure of watching daytime TV could motivate me but for health reasons I made myself go.
We have settled into our new house but because of distance I gave up the gym. But Bronte started swimming lessons at 7pm enough time for Bruce to get home a look after Miranda and I started swimming once a week since Feb. I have found that 2 of my local pools have a creche - so Miranda has found herself in creche twice now and last Sunday I dragged myself up and headed for the pool (3 swims last week).

So for me it's swimming up and down a pool that will keep me healthy - maybe I could go back to competition swimming in a few years?

Hey thanks for the informative post, Swimming classes should be something that a person takes up when young. Well I guess an adult can also take up swimming lessons. Never too young to try!
