Breaststroke

Hi peeps! Today I am going to be posting about breaststroke and why I like it so much. I really like breaststroke because I can relax myself while I’m doing it. But sometimes in my swim team we have to do sprint breaststroke and that is the only times I don’t like it. Other times, we just do it after a 30 minute freestyle sprint and it feels really good to relax yourself after a long and tiring swim.

I also enjoy swimming the breaststroke because I can do it for a longer time than the other strokes and because it was my 2nd stroke that I learned out of all four of the strokes. 

When I was younger I used to call the breaststroke the froggy stroke and I’ve always believed that it was called that until my dad told me the truth. When I found out, I cried ’cause I always thought that the”froggy stroke” was the right one.

Butterfly stroke

Hi people! Today I’m going to be posting about the facts about why I don’t like butterfly and a little more about it. First of all butterfly looks like this: Image result for butterfly stroke

It is my least favorite stroke because on the 6th step, you have to immediately put your head down even though your hands are not even up yet.  I also do not like it because when I kick, my hands do not go up enough so that affects me from going farther so I basically stay in one place. also when I kick, the kicks I do are not strong so that also affects me from going farther. Even though it is not as worse as my backstroke is, it is still really bad.

Passion Post: Swim

Hi peeps! Today I’m going to be posting about swim. Swimming is one of my passions simply because I’ve been doing it for 5 years. For swim team though, I have only been doing it for 2 years. Now I am in the Badgers Swim Club and the requirements that they have are quite hard.

I normally go 3 times a week to practice, but if there is a meet, I go four times. I just had my second meet on Saturday, but I don’t know what place I am in. The last time I had a meet, I was in 63rd place, 42nd place, and 63rd place again. the strokes that I did were:  100 freestyle (63rd), 50 backstroke (63rd), and 50 breaststroke (42nd).  I wasn’t really happy about that. I thought that I would do better than I actually did.

If I were to line the strokes in the order I liked them, it would probably be like this: breaststroke, freestyle, butterfly, and finally backstroke. I absolutely hate backstroke because I have never been good at it. I am also not really good at butterfly because I always can’t get my hips up so I can go faster. I am pretty good at freestyle , but if I use all my energy at once, I can’t do more than 5 laps before slowing down. Breaststroke is my favorite stroke because I can relax when I’m doing it. Sometimes I can’t relax because either I’m in a meet or my coach tells us to go sprint breaststroke.  What is your favorite stroke if you do swimming?
