Front Crawl

I officially learned the front crawl tonite! It was awesome, I'm so excited and I can't wait to actually go swimming in a pool!! Our instructor was not here today so we had a sub, she noticed how quickly I was swimming and taught me 2 new steps, well one is to prepare me for the "front" crawl :) I had an exercise where I bring my arm up from the water and brush my finger tips along the water, this is to let me know how it feels to have my elbows up in the air. After a few laps of this, she directed me to point my fingers and slant my arms like a curve as my hand hits the water to pull back, it feels like I'm scooping the water. No longer a straight arm crawl :) It was awesome, can't wait to use my new front crawl move in the pool!
