First Lesson on Backstroke

11-30-2013

In today’s swim lesson, I swam half the pool freestyle. After that, Adventurer Jr. II started me on backstroke. He first taught me the kick. Your legs need to be straight, just like freestyle. He even went underwater to make sure that I was doing it correctly. After, Adventure Jr. II demonstrated how to push the water with your arms. I was able to swim the entire length of the pool several times. I think backstroke is easier to learn, at least with the noodles. Once I don’t have them, it might be a different story.

It’s interesting to see how things progress. I am looking forward to next swim lesson.
