    Thats good going! Although I wouldnt be able to help you,Im curious to know how you do your swim in a pool? do you count your stokes? get a warning poolside or is someone swimming along side you for the turn?

    although im registered blind ,i still have some usefull vision left at the moment so i can still see the end of the pool.it does get a bick awkward when i swim in pools sometimes if theres too many people in,but they are good at my local pool and will close me alane off if i ask.
