Swimming Forums Welcome to the Family! New to swimming Reply To: New to swimming


Hello Guys,
I’m Fernando, I’m 48 and aspiring triathlete. Ok runner, ok-iest rider. I’m absolute new to swimming but loving my swimming lessons. My teacher in the suburbs of Chicago is great; she started with a lego-philosophy, giving us the building blocks to be great swimmers, the kicks, the arm-strokes, the breathing, the switching singe and triple. I’m a quick study and making progress but is hard! breathing is hard. Even with my endurance background, it’s hard. Putting all those building blocks together is not easy.
Anyways, I have a good one full year to prepare for my Ironman, wish me luck.
I found this community through my YouTube feed and subscribed immediately. Phenomenal content.
