Great. I’ve got the 1500 metre badge
I go swimming 4 or 5 times a week but wouldn’t say I’m particularly good in terms of speed
Can you pick up a brick from the bottom of the pool while wearing your pyjamas, too?
Used to be a really good swimmer when I was younger. Think I’d be cunted after two lengths these days.
Breathing out through your mouth into the water then turning your head to breathe in, seamlessly
- Fucking impossible
- I move away from the water to breathe in
Strange how that’s not something I’ve had reason to do in my adult life. Still time, I guess
I’m ok. Not as good as I should be given my height.
Have a noticed a few houses near me have pools, but they are about 8 metres long or even less. What is the point of that? Cost a bomb to run and you’re basically at the other side in a few strokes.
I’m pretty alright at my own slow pace but after about 10 lengths I’m absolutely done. Swimming in the sea is tonnes of fun though
I can swim but hate it. It’s just not-drowning. I can do that on dry land, thankyouverymuch.
I can survive. Could probably thrash through 1000m if I needed to because I’m fairly fit but I’ve got appalling technique and don’t enjoy it
Was in a swimming club until I reached the age of cba with extracurricular shit. Got a load of medals somewhere (parents’ loft probably) from competitions I used to go to.
Haven’t been swimming properly (as in at a proper swimming baths, rather than fucking about in a pool/the sea on holiday) for about 10 years but reckon I’d still be well above average.
We lived in the middle east when I was younger, and swam every day after school. And so became quite good quite quickly, but have no idea now. I haven’t swam for decades. Let’s just assume it’s like riding a bike (but wetter, (unless it’s raining)) and say ‘not bad’.
I’m quite good at swimming, but only the frog one. Slow and steady but I can go fast enough to exercise
I can swim breaststroke for a long time, often do 2 hours non stop but I’m slow so in that time probably only cover 2 miles.
Can’t go fast though and I can’t really do other strokes so well
somewhere between can’t swim and can barely swim
I’d like to get better, but I think maybe the chlorine at swimming pools affects my asthma?
Won an achievement award at my swimming club when I was a kid. Got a wooden shield and everything.
Like going on about this because it’s probably the only time I’ve ever won anything
As a teenager I competed at county level.
I gave up when my mates started going to the pub, and I couldn’t be arsed training any more.
Bit silly really.
My technique is abysmal. Can just about do 50m
