Amy Hopkinson: Progress Report #3

Share Share Share

This week, Ibiza beckoned so I was away holidaying and working on my tan. Not one to let a challenge slip, I packed my goggles and kept at it while overseas, searching out a pool to allow me to keep my toe in. What I found was even better: a short, high-powered infinity pool, which is like the swimming equivalent of being on a treadmill. You don’t have to focus on anything other than form, as there is no end to bump your head on plus no people swimming around you. And focus I did; slowing down my stroke, as instructed by Dan Bullock, and I feel like I’m swimming better than ever.
