Chlorine is my perfume (3)

I am neither pro swimmer nor doctor, so you are following my advice on your own risk. For better understanding, read my Quick Reference first.

This one is great fun if you’re still having some troubles doing a decent dolphinkick. You’ll learn. Just keep going (and do not drown).

Just want one thing…

(Running) “Hey! Wanna go on our hill?” – “Sure! Let’s run all the way!” (Later, in the forest:) “Oh for God’s sake I was just kidding!!” – “Be careful what you wish.”

To tell the truth, actually my friend was the one merrily running ahead. All the way up! But anyway it’s amazing how those stupid ideas always take on a life of their own… (Next chapter of that story will probably follow shortly.)

Racing dives are for slowpokes.

(Swimming) “Dear Swimming Pros… it might come as a surprise… but it’s not fobidden to have fun!”
