Confessions of a Lane 5 Swimmer

Swim for Life Again
Originally uploaded by reflexblue

I have mostly swam in Lane 4 for the past several months. I'm not sure if that's because I'm getting faster or the Fins is getting slower. At first I felt out of breath, and I had to sit out a few 50's. Now I'm beginning to feel comfortable. I realized that I belonged in Lane 4 when I led during a 800 stroke set, and continued to lead during the next set, which was 4 x 100 pull. I still struggled with bad forms, but I have found a way to use my upper body strength to power my way through water. It's probably not ideal, but I work with what I have.
