the coach at the pool asked me how much swimming experience i had. none. he said, "this will be fun." then he said, "swim to the end of the pool and let me see." so i did. and he said, "ok. not too bad. now you need to do it with your head under the water." and he showed me the proper breathing and technique. and i told him i needed to try it first at the shallow end of the pool. i was in the beginner lane with two other people. justin was there, but he was two lanes over swimming like a bad ass. and he came over to check on me a couple of times and help me out. so i tried it a few times and the coach said, "now you need to swim the whole length." and so i went for it. it took me a minute to mentally make myself do it. i found that i was concentrating so hard on my breathing and form and choking on so much water that i just did it. i swam down to the deep end of the pool. looking at the bottom. without freaking out. believe me it creeped me out big time, but i just kept moving and trying. it is going to take me quite a while to get the whole head turning to the side and breathing down without feeling like i am drowning. swimming is hard.
my favorite thing to do is run in the mountains. and in the desert. ok, on any trail! i love any outdoor adventure. standing on top of mountains is my favorite and i love fitness and yoga. i am basically allergic to food, but i love to cook and bake. i am trying to kick lymphoma's butt. i am 38 years old and i am a new widow and it is tragic and hard and i don't know what i am doing! i am a tomboy that loves nail polish and cute dresses. oh, and i take all my pictures with my iphone. thanks for stopping by...
ps my name is pronounced siri.
