When I started
I started taking swimming more seriously in my senior year in college.
How I started
I started in a Swimming Essentials course, that included land activities, analysis, coaching, and swim education. I also used to go to swimming camp as a kid.
Why I love it
I love swimming, because it is good for my RA and I feel great afterward. I also love the swimmers build, I think it will look good on me (notwithstanding the attractiveness of looking like an upside down triangle). There is something about being fully immersed in water that makes me very happy and also gives me a new perspective about being on dry land. I love swimming because it literally allows me to turn my world upside down and experience a gravity less environment, i feel like im flying when I swim I love it!
How I stay motivated
My goal is to be as healthy as I can be and to understand what my body needs in order to be at top fitness. I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis and it is part of improving my overall health and mobility to stay active. I also like the structure swimming adds to my life.
I maintain a swim schedule wherein I set a goal of 12 visits to the pool/month and I have successfully made myself accountable to this goal since 2007.
