Swimmers thread 🏊🏻‍♀️

You and I are appreciative of an empty lane for likely 2 different reasons. You so you don’t get caught up overtaking other slower swimmers, and me because I am the slower swimmer haha plus I probably have no idea of lane sharing unwritten rules of etiquette :joy::joy:

It really feels like betrayal. You get in, it’s crisp and peaceful and lovely. The few adults are behaving and sharing the lane nicely… Then a troupe of sixty tiny humans in colourful caps stream in and start screaming firstly. Then they get in… Usually via the ‘bombing’ method.

I usually listen to some music before swimming to have a flow in my mind already. Some fine electro or just some hero punkrock things lol. Love that. Would not use earphones, as I love to be able to be and to be on my own for about 1 hour underwater. Just the sound of breathing bubbles or some splashes through technique drills or during flip turn. Love it.

There is this guy, I c very often and have a similar pace with. He is always saying hi and sometimes he is making jokes underwater. We c each other upside down sometimes, if one is doing flipturn. At the end of his session he is doing some very astetique underwater art, diving and doing forms, turns and last time handstands. I felt like he enjoys when I am watching him and sometimes doing it especially for me. Today he did, for sure. As he waited starting, until I came to the end of the lane to follow him and definitely had to c him doing his funny stuff. Argh. He is making such nice pictures in my head.

Happy flow :blue_heart::man_cartwheeling:t2::notes::notes::notes:

Im glad to be back :star:
Thank you :+1:

I was looking at underwater headphones, but just thought the same takes away from the swim. I wouldn’t mind trying it out to see but I’m pretty sure unless you pay a big price they won’t be worth it for underwater. And just incase for any safety issues being able to hear if anything happens.

I have a big fear in the water the floor drains and lights under the water creep me out big time!!

This summer I plan to do some outside swimming in lakes. An adventure :smiling_face:

Ouuhhh… I understand if it’s an older pool. I am afraid of these wave making machines. Glad there is non in regular pools!

I once even didnt hear the lifeguard, as I was crowling so enthusiastic with breathing just every 6th stroke… he was piping like crazy and even talking over the speakers, as there was a thunderstorm over the outdoor pool.
Lol. I was the only one in there.

Since I did the lifeguard education on my own,
I am more aware of several things :ring_buoy:

Hope you are planning your next set soon.
Appreciate meeting you back in ts swim club :blue_heart:

My dear friend, do you also use a Huawei fit watch?

I use Huawei fit elegant since 2 years.
It was always reliable but since last months it is not counting the lanes correct if I am wearing fins and doing special technique training like streamline. It’s a bit frustrating if I smashed 2400 and it says only 1800 :grimacing::grimacing::grimacing:

Maybe I will get a new watch next months, but I have to check if it’s good for swimming. My health insurance is even supporting wearables with 30 Euro :+1:t2::+1:t2:

Yes I do, mines old though Im sure.
This is it

I have a fit bit 4 unopened I have never used as I am so used to this one.
It seems to working ok for me … I think :thinking:

I paid £60 for it around 2 yrs ago then it went up in price to £150 and back down to £90. I wouldn’t of paid more so was shocked when it went to such high price.
The watches tracking our sessions definitely is a huge motivater for me and it’s nice keeping track.
I’m not that tech savvy.

I have looked a quite a few but if I’m honest I don’t know half of what all the specs mean :sweat_smile:

I have this one, the price also increased 100% :grimacing:
I realy liked it…
But not sure if I will buy it again, as the wrong measurement is disturbing.
Will try to find out what is a good watch for swimmers that is not too expensive and compatible preferable with Huawei.
Most important thing is right measurement of my swim workouts and nice looking. :face_with_hand_over_mouth:
And friendly user menu.

Getting colder and too dark in the mornings for me to swim before work anymore, I should man up and jump in but not the biggest fan of cold water
