Good timing. I want to say "I might go swimming." Should I say "Pudiera ir a nadar." or "Podría ir a nadar." Personally, I like the first one but it seems they are interchangable. Or, is there a better way to say it? I am trying to make a distinction between "might" and "could", if there is one. Thanks!

Better choose "Podría ir a nadar". The other option isnt very common. Even though, depends on the context. For example "Quien pudiera ir a nadar ?" its a rhetorical use.

I just realized I do not have very clear the english distinction between "might" and "could", so i cant say much about that.
