Of Diving and Tumbleturns
I have a couple of long overdue posts that are still in my drafts page. A lot of things have happened since my last post that I have barely enough time to collect a breath of fresh air and just relax.
I’m currently taking up lessons in swimming (life skills 101) along with my other colleagues at work. I’ll be talking about that in a couple or more blogs from now.
I just feel happy being able to conquer my fear in diving. In addition, the feeling of headiness once diving can be very strong and simply AMAZING! Our coach wasn’t around that time so trying it out was less pressured. Another thing I’ve tried out today was the “tumbleturn” – the word swimmers use to define what they do once they reach the end of the pool and do a flip or sorts to get back to the other side.
Ever since I was younger, these 2 movements were styles that would make me lose my stomach (out of fear). Now, the fear is still there but I guess you’d have to try it out and just wing it! I’m looking forward in our further trainings. Wish me luck!
How about you guys? Any recent activities and accomplishments you’re proud of? Share away!
