If you asked me if I know how to swim, I tell you, yes… but not the formal level. I can do floating and swimming in a 4.5 feet water level only. To add, not in open water but in swimming pool only. I hold back when I can’t see and feel the pool floor anymore, I feel like I’m drowning.
I’ve always wanted to conquer this fear. I asked my triathlete friend Teacher Tina Zamora, if I’m too old to learn swimming. She told me that her triathlete husband, Dennis Zamora was in zero knowledge in swimming. I was surprised! She added, Daddy D (Dennis) just learned swimming recently. I won’t reveal Daddy D’s age but he’s in his 40’s already. Daddy D, please don’t spank me hahaha!!! She advised me that no one is old in swimming, if I really want to learn then, it will happen. I had prepared my stuff like head cap, goggles and rash guard.
This is it, I decided to face this fear seriously. This July, I will swim more than biking and I am proud to introduce my swimming coach Kaye Lopez of Fit + Academy as she will teach me baby steps in swimming. She told me that she will prepare a customized training plan for me based on my skills.
If you will ask if I will join Xterra next year, my answer is.. we’ll see. I will try to be an obedient and submissive student.
Level up na ‘to…. Don’t worry biker friends, we will meet more often in MOA instead 🙂
