At the age of thirty"ahem"thing, I've decided that I needed to do something that has eluded me for so long.
I'm good at most sports, being blessed with pretty good hand/eye co-ordination, quite fleet of foot and above average stamina. However, there's one "sport" I was never able to master...
Yep, I decided to finally learn to swim.
Swimming seems to come naturally to most people but for me, my feet are most definitely land-bound. I'm like a mini-Titanic - I don't float. Sure, this 'infliction' has never stopped me from going into the sea on holidays, riding on banana boats, snorkelling etc, but with a life jacket, you can do anything.
I had my first swimming class on Friday and I was a tad nervous and apprehensive. We just did some basic stuff and I was ok with those. I'd forgotten what it was like to get water up my nose and how terrible chlorinated water tasted.
I really want to do this but it's not going to be easy.
