June discovers a new approach to front crawl and takes it into open water.
I came to stay at Croft Farm 2 years ago wanting to be able to swim freestyle – and to actually enjoy swimming!
I may not be fast, or technically very good, but I am a swimmer. I used to be too scared to enjoy being in the water.
Lessons with Ian and Cheryl at Croft Farm changed how I feel about floating, getting a breath, allowed me to experience that sensation which now feels like flying! I thank them both sincerely for the gift which keeps on giving 🙂
And so I have evolved into an outdoor swimmer. It makes me feel intensely alive and ready to cope with anything.
I started in earnest last summer. Went through my first winter, ’skins’ swimming in the sea – well, dipping rather than swimming really! And I have found a lake not too far from home for lovely fresh water swims. Nowadays I choose holiday destinations which give me chances to try new rivers, lakes, beaches.
