Already tired of crowded swim lanes and watching black lines? For some of us, it is difficult to transition from open water to the pool. No more trees to sight or sun rays illuminating the underwater.
Here are my top 5 suggestions for tackling pool boredom.
1. Try a different pool
2. Reach out and find a swim buddy
3. Be creative with you plan
4. Create a 3 month improvement project using SMART goals
Ask your friends to meet you at the pool. Swimming is a social sport mainly before and after the workout so reaching out to non swimmers is a good option. Join a community group that offers group swims.
Last and the most fun, is remember to play in the water. Take a moment and watch any children around. Try and experience their sense of adventure. Try a somersault. Sit by a water jet. Try a dolphin kick. Remember – water is your friend. Playing with your friend is the best way to get to know it.
