Allow me to expand on that: I swim every day and I concentrate on my form and what it is that I do with my motions so I do not think that my technique is out of whack (at least not greatly) as far as my hands are concerned. I mostly swim the front crawl and I have no problems during laps - it is just out of the pool that I feel a tenderness/pain in my wrists.
For example, if I happen to swim more during a particular week then I tend to feel greater tenderness in my wrists than I do on lighter weeks even though the tenderness persists throughout the light and hard weeks.
Sometimes I cannot put any pressure on my hands by lifting myself off the ground, for example, because of the associated pain.
So, my questions to you swimmers out there is:
is this normal?
Does anyone experience the same symptoms, because no one at my pool admits to anything of the sort?
Could this be just wear-and-tear?
I do not want to give the impression that this is alarmingly serious because there isn't any real pain, per se, nor does it affect my life either, expect occasionally. However, I am slightly paranoid.
