Swimming is the self-propulsion of a person through water, usually for recreation, sport, exercise, or survival. Locomotion is achieved through coordinated movement of the limbs, the body, or both. Humans can hold their breath underwater and undertake rudimentary locomotive swimming within weeks of birth, as a survival response. Swimming is consistently among the top public recreational activities, and in some countries, swimming lessons are a compulsory part of the educational curriculum. As a formalized sport, swimming features in a range of local, national, and international competitions, including every modern Summer Olympics.

"Dave Grohl's ideal day? Pot of coffee, nice swim, BBQ with a keg of beer and some good friends. A good show - go see a proper band.

When he's in writing mode for a novel, he gets up at 4am and works for five to six hours. In the afternoon, he will run for 10km or swim for 1500m (or do both), then read a bit and listen to some music.

I don’t like doing weights and I don’t like running, because it’s bad for your knees, but I do like to go swimming because I find it very relaxing and peaceful. I try to eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, and go swimming when I can. That’s my fitness regime.

I like to go for a swim. I'm always going for a swim in the pool or the beach if I can.
