Breast Stroke for me.
I like it because I don't choke myself!

Freestyle, the challenge to focus on every little detail in order to swim with proper technique motivates me to wake up every morning at 5am and hit the pool

My favorite stroke is Freestyle, the challenge of having to focus on every little detail in order to swim with proper technique motivates me every morning to wake up at 5am and hit the pool.

My favorite stroke is the breast stroke probably because I think that is my best one. Maybe it will change as I improve.

I have subscribed to your blog for awhile now and really enjoy the news round-ups. Good luck with your training too - I know what it's like to really appreciate the sport but struggle to find time in my daily life for it. Anyway, sorry it takes me wanting to enter this contest to come on here and say that... :)

My favorite stroke is backstroke. I like to breathe, and it provides a nice counterpoint for freestyle when my right shoulder starts acting up on me. Really, IM themed workouts are my favorite and if I won the random drawing I would be a very happy swimmer! Keep on blogging...

Freestyle...endless opportunities for improvement.

My favorite swim stroke would have to be the butterfly. No other stroke challanges your body to near exhaustion! Small changes can make the stroke feel easier, smoother, and less confusing. Hopefuly the DVD "Swim Like A Champion" would have me swim the butterfly with perfect form!!
