So a bit of a random one that I've been pondering whilst sat in the sun today.
So I can swim (just), have been able to since childhood. Only basic front crawl and never back stroke. I hate being in a deep pool that is deeper than I can stand in and generally avoid it.
My issue is that I don't seem to be able to float. If you threw me in the middle of a deep pool, just drown.
My partner's dad has a pool and the kids love playing in it but I never join in (well I stay in the tiny bit of shallow).
I don't have the confidence at all. I won't even attempt to swim anymore as I don't feel safe in the water.
Just wondering if there is anything I can do to improve? I've read that some people can't float. However I'm not hugely skinny nor overweight.
Can swim but can't float...
