I’m in love with swimming more than ever although when I practice swim in Marikina, I always find my abdomen part (or my stomach) hurting. According to Chelly, a Sport Science graduate and an orgmate, it is normal that I feel pain in the abdomen part because swimming is a full body exercise. Everything is stretched and worked out because almost the whole body is moving.
It is a good stress-reliever and a diversion to any problems including problems of the heart when the person your like for instance, can’t be yours. This is a true story!
Well, anyway, I will practice more and more because I only know one stroke. I watched on youtube how to do other strokes but when I try it in the pool, I can’t do it. I don’t know if it’s the fear to swallow water that prevents me from accomplishing other strokes.
I promise I will not give up until I learn the other strokes. The guy who’s doing the butterfly at Marikina a while ago has a perfect form (at least in my perspective). He was really good.
