I went to swimming today and learnt some basic breaststroke skills.
Swimming is another exciting sport in life. I feel guilty that I cannot swim for 25 years. Recently, I went to Sports Hotel – the hotel near the conjuction of Nandan Road and Cao Xi Road North to learn swim every Saturday and it is especially interesting for me as a beginner.
Before today, I cannot breath when I swim. I can manage to swim to about 15 meters with one single breath, but cannot reach further. The breakthrough I got today is, I begin to be able to breath. According to Red Cross’ seven level of swimming, I am almost in level 3 now.
I found this article on breaststorke very useful for me. It may be useful for other who can or cannot swim.
I remember the old poem on progress again:
Computer files are always incompatible
If it worked yesterday, it won’t work today
— That’s progress.
Today I will say: “I cannot swim yersterday, I can today – that’s progress”
A nice day, isn’t it?
