Last week we had an “ask 2 Fat Nerds” question asking for tips for beginner adult swimmers. So, this is my attempt at answering that!
I learned to swim at a very young age. We have family home videos of a pretty adorable two-year-old me belly flopping into the pool, swimming to the other side, pulling myself out of the water, and belly flopping back in. I have vague memories of swim lessons at UAlbany, where I mostly just remember the Cheerios, and I have years of experience swimming summers on the Cape. Swimming has always come as second nature; I’m a fish.
