Ive started swimming again this year after many years of absence, and Im hooked!
I cant think of another sport where one can work out so many muscle groups at the same time (without feeling like its an effort).
Even though I can swim (sort of), Im still struggling with this:
I cant seem to be able to lift my head out of the water without it entering my nostrils ;( Also, when I try to lift my head to breathe, it feels like I cant do it fast enough.....
Maybe our swimming pros here can give me some advice insha Allah: : )

Dont let your fears overcome you!
You are bigger than them! : )
Prevent yourself from recalling the bad experiences of the past.....and just go for it.
Once you learn how to swim and are you comfortable in water, you'll love it!
And as a bonus: Its a sunnah as well : )
