Aquatic Resumption

Sixty. Not the advanced age, Belmont hastens to add. I have a dozen years to go on that one. Ha!

Swimming at the old sports club began in earnest this evening; and I got to it like the proverbial duck to water. I swam sixty lengths.

The stroke I use is the front crawl. I noticed that swimmers at the Olympics had a certain technique, whereby, when they pushed themselves off the wall of the pool, they performed a sort of dolphin movement for a few seconds, prior to using their arms.

I tried this technique and it does seem to be effective.
