Michael's class assignment to write on the topic, "If I could camouflage myself..."
If I could camouflage myself, I would hide on the bottom of an Olympic pool.
To begin with, I would be invisible so I could get up close to someone. I could go from lane to lane to see each swimmer as they swim. I’d have the best view to watch the fastest swimmers in the world as they compete against each other.
In addition, I would be able to watch and learn the stroke techniques of the world’s best swimmers as they go for the gold medal.
In conclusion, I hope to pick up some more speed in my favorite stroke, which is freestyle. This would be an opportunity of a lifetime to learn from the best of the best.
He's so CUTE!
He takes after his mother. ;-)
Thanks, Sharon. Having grown up in St. Petersburg, I'm so used to being able to head down to the bay for a beautiful sursine or out to the beaches for an amazing sunset. It's hard for me to imagine living in an area where there isn't any water around to provide the background for these beautiful sights. So, it's fun to share with others. By the way, I've seen some very nice photos (and posts) from you and your group over the past many months. In fact, the professionalism that you folks seem to embrace was one of the factors that inspired me to go ahead and start my blog. I had seen some other blogs that pretty much put me off of the idea, so your posts have been a welcome find. Bob
Relaxing in the water is more than half the battle. I don't think I relaly got the hang of doing more than one lap at a time of front crawl until I figured out how to swim slowly enough to be able to endure it longer.Of course, in learning to run distances, I had to learn how to run slowly enough to endure it longer.I'm planning on doing the Miquelon Lake Alberta Challenge triathlon in August. You could look into that. It has a nice, friendly sprint distance
