Friday night swim
Last night was the regular Friday night swim for Karl’s daughter. An hour of play before her lesson and then some serious swimming whilst she has her class.
The fun time was great - she can happily dive underwater now and doesn’t seem to have the fear which is something that is important for all kids, I was really impressed with how much improved she was since the last time i saw her a few months ago. Towards the end of the play time we were playing hide and seek, so i took that as the perfect opportunity to hide in the steam room whilst Karl started the serious progress of improving his swim technique.
Eventually, i decided it was time for a race, but i didn’t tell him how i was planning to get to the other end of the pool. I’m a slow but steady swimmer but can only do the breast stroke, so my cunning plan involved grabbing hold of his foot so that he swam for me as well, followed by pulling myself very quickly along the rope. I only ended up getting to the other side of the pool mere seconds behind him which i personally thought was pretty impressive.
Unfortunately his shoulder is still not any closer to healing. When he rolls it you can literally hear everything clicking. I think i have persuaded him to see another physiotherapist but if you don’t hear that he has its up to all of you to help me nag him!
