[QUOTE=yogabreathes;101685]Actually, you can't stop breathing unless.......! I was taught by my dad before i went to school, but rarely go now,the water does nasty things to my carefully coloured hair![/QUOTE]

i haven't been to a swimming pool for years and years...it was the communal changing rooms that finished it off for me!!

but give me a beach and a wavy sea or a water park and I am like a child again.....i love the waves and the way they toss you about..... and the water slides( not the kamakazi ones tho!!).. are great fun..........

She says I am her only adult pupil who actually likes being under the water. My local pool is closed for repair work until after the new year and strangely I am missing going for my weekly lesson. We have such a giggle together and as my lesson is at lunchtime we sometimes have the pool to ourselves. The staff are great and give me a lot of support.
My friends Grandson can only swim under water

I have been able to swim since I was about 11 but when I had my knees replaced last year I had to learn again because my legs didn't work properly .......It felt like they were too heavy and dragging me down, but I've got used to it now and I'm swimming again (not as fast as when I was younger tho').

The trouble is.........in Majorca I daren't swim in the Sea near the Hotel because there were rocks on the bottom and I was frightened of knocking my knees as I swam so I stuck with the Pool

Swimming is one of the best exercise you can do its just a pity you have all the hassle to get to a pool and then the costs involved if you take the family.

I pay 2.50 at the pool in Linlithgow which is pensioners' rates but if I go to my local pool either at Grangemouth or Falkirk it is free for the over 60s. Unfortunately I don't like either of these pools as they are very big and I always feel I am getting in the way of the serious swimmers. Most local authorities have free swimming in Scotland for the over 60's.
