Swimming: 7 Things I've Learned So Far...

  1. I suck at swimming (so far)
  2. Swimming makes me burp. I think that has something to do with the large amounts of air I'm trying to take in to avoid drowning.. Might have something to do with the egg and salsa breakfast too. Stay tuned.
  3. It makes the middle of my back sore.
  4. I can't do as many pushups because of it.
  5. It's intimidating to see all the "swimmers" while I'm flailing around in the pool.
  6. Blow bubbles under water to exhale so that you can actually breathe when you come up for air.
  7. I... gasp... like it.

Thats awesome that you are 1. not drowning and 2. liking it! Swimming intimidates the crap out of me... but maybe one day...

I look pretty bad in the pic, but I thought it was a cool action shot.

And yes, Andrew, I guess that's the most important.

"Swimming makes me burp." Hilarious.

I don't think it would be due to the salsa breakfast. Wrong end.

Eric Gervase said...

Right right... the salsa probably would've made me.. well, you're right.
