I swim, therefore I am

Frank D Totten

Swimming is an activity I just like to do. Participation and competition in organized events are good and so is the exercise. But most of all, moving through the water is what I like the best. After years of stroke skills development I am always striving to improve.

I swim at Fort Myers Aquatic Center, FMAC, Florida Gulf Coast University, (FGCU) Aquatic Center mostly on my own with guidance from Coach Chuck Slaght. When rare occasional circumstances require being close to home, I swim at the Catalina lsle Community HOA Pool. More about me...

    Comments:
    • Set 1 - Swam all strokes smooth building each 50.
    • Set 2 - Some old fashioned pulling, and it certainly gave my shoulders a workout.
    • Set 3 - This how I would like to swim without the fins! But swimming with fins does make it fun.
