Happy New Year!  I’m still working on my swimming drills.  As I’ve started to transition into other drills I have been trying really hard to practice breathing while swimming.  It has been surprisingly difficult.  I was so frustrated with my lack of progress today that I stood against the wall of the pool and just thought about what I could do to help.  I decided that I should try to get my pull stroke to provide more momentum for my body roll which would allow me to make it around enough to get that breath.

I tried that and it actually worked.  I could get to the air.  Hopefully I will make some progress now.  I did feel like I may have been over rotating when I breathe, but my sister-in-law watched me swim for a bit, and she thinks I was doing ok.  Now I just have to plug away!
