I learned a whole lot of things during my freediving course :awesome:

I also learned one of the things I used to do when swimming underwater was actually pretty unsafe, so I'm really glad I now know the proper way.
What was the unsafe thing? For nosy curiosity....
Apparently I was hyperventilating before trying to swim a large distance underwater. I already knew about the dangers of hyperventilating before going underwater: it can result in a so-called shallow water blackout, which is one of the leading causes of drowning among swimmers. However, I had no clue I was actually hyperventilating, as it's something I associate with breathing fast. This weekend I learned that to take repeated slow, deep breaths (in a resting state) is actually hyperventilating too because you're expelling more CO2 than needed. Instead a 1-to-2 breathing pattern is recommended to relax, for example, 4 seconds in, 8 seconds out.
Well that totally isn't terrifying :shock:
I learned a tiny bit about shallow water blackouts.

I learned that, even ignoring all the other (non-ignorable) issues, I probably wouldn't be able to get a passport in time for my friend's wedding. I guess knowing I can't go is better than holding out what-if hopes, but... :(

@AA, Legally anyway. :twisted:

I learned masks are being made mandatory for our local area.
