Swimming properly

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Swimming : One Thread

I am 26(m) and I am, let me say, beginner in the swimming. I would like to learn swimming properly. I have been going to swimmingpool almost every day since last year. I have noticed that I have quiet poor technique. I can swim 5 Km without problem but I am qiuet slow! What should I do? Learn from a book, which one?

Learning with arm bands first always helps - they help you with buoyancy and leg technique - once you have mastered the art of swimming with arm bands you could try a rubber ring. Once accomplished, try your new technique out in the sea among the sharks - I am sure your speed will improve then! I suggest you read books by Danielle Steele - she is rather good
