Swimming Backstroke

Another swimming lesson….another challenge!

backstroke

Trying to co-ordinate my arms as I attempt backstroke was hard, in the end the teacher said just to use them separately until it happened automatically. There’s something oddly liberating about looking up at the ceiling as you move through the water, it involves a lot of trust that there’s no-one behind you. I like this stroke, I think it’s a good one to alternate with as it gives me a bit of time to calm down the breathing and enjoy the water.
