i am a free diver

Well hello there, how was your weekend?

Mine was wet and cold as I spent more hours out in the ocean or on the pool.

Both Saturday and 1/2 day yesterday I participated on the SSI free diving course level 1. Now, I am happy to announced the I passed course and from now I am ready to take on free diving, but now it's all about practice, practice, practice to get better at it, both holding my breath as well as equalizing for when diving down.

not me in the photo, but pretty close (source)
When I started the course on Sat. morning I was only able to hold my breath for 58 seconds, but then end of Sat. after some learned techniques as well as some relaxations breathing exercises I managed a record of 2 minutes 10 seconds, not bad!

So, yes, my weekend was not a very relaxing one and in fact I feel pretty tired to start the week, but happy to cross off another goal out of my bucket list (with by the way I don't really have a set one)... and proud of myself.

How was your weekend? Hoping it was a great one!

Happy Week :)

Now how TOTALLY cool is that!!!!!! Green with envy, lol (and yet I am!). That has just got to be the coolest thing to dive freely and deeply into the ocean - oh my goodness. Wishing I was there with you.

Congrats on passing! One of my close friends used to be a diver, and it always sounded like such an exhilarating experience. I hope you have a great start to your week!
