Yea ... I got to swim today after work-then-therapy! I did 1000 yds (20 laps) and a few of my flip-turns were magical things of beauty ... I absolutely adore that 1-second in time when I am looking up the surface of the water from upside down ... I can't explain why and none of my parts can either, but that 1-second of upside-down-looking-up perspective is like when I get to let every care and worry go and just 'be'. Then I kick off the wall and right myself and its another 25yds of rhythmic strokes and breathing from each side until ... Yea I get to do another flip-turn. btw I have never swam competitively, but I have taken Advance Lifesaving a few x.
