Today it was swimming lessons (not that this is me after swimming!)
I’ve been having private swimming lessons for the last five months. I was quite scared of the water after having two frightening experiences as a child; one where I was pushed into a swimming pool by a friend who thought I could swim (he jumped in and saved me once he realised) and the other while I was in the sea with my dad.
I can’t say I’m coming on in leaps and bounds, it’s more like two steps forward and one step back. However, I am now managing half a width doing a sort of stretched out doggy paddle! For me, it’s a long way from where I started. I can’t say I’m enjoying it and it’s expensive at £11.50 for 30 minutes, but I am determined and will keep going until I can swim a width in a decent manner.
The added bonus is that it’s exercise and is improving my fitness levels.
I normally go to Zumba on a Monday evening but I’ve had a terrible headache all day, fell asleep and missed the class!
Am I lapsing already?
