Today: SOWS
That's Simulated Open Water Swim - and I just made up that term. I called it Simulated Ocean Swim before but "Open Water" is the better term. Open water suggests natural bodies of water like the ocean or sea, lakes and rivers. There's no pool bottom to rest your feet on and no pool walls to kick from. In addition to the usual resting strokes, I put in a couple of backstrokes. They're pretty baaaad. Got water in the nose in both times. But, patience, patience, patience, is what I need to finally get it right. Oh, Happy Valentines' Day.
