Last evening I began the challenge of learning how to swim.
This is attempt #2 for me, attempt #1 of my adult life.
In short, it was a success – I didn’t freak out, didn’t panic and most importantly didn’t drown. In fact, I quite enjoyed it. I think it was a combination of the small class size, not facing it alone and my brain’s love of learning new skills that I might actually be able to master.
My fellow fish-in-training described me as a dolphin but I’m afraid myself and Fungi are still world’s apart! I’ve almost got to grips with the “dead man’s float” and faced with the challenge of learning how to breathe in the water (my downfall on attempt #1).
Week 1 verdict: it won’t be easy but I’m optimistic and relishing the challenge ahead.
