I am taking a month long swim class that starts tonight.
Yes, I DO know how to swim. But when I say that, I mean I can jump in a pool, swim around a bit, turn a few somersaults without water going up my nose, and then go on to float around on a raft for hours.
But I don't swim laps for a workout. I've tried doing it here and there, but I'm not so good with the breathing. So after just a few laps, I'm exhausted.
My husband and one of our good friends signed up for a swim class with Dallas Aquatic Masters (DAM!). I decided to join them. I figure it will be a good balance with my running. I am a little nervous I'll be the slowest, most out-of-breath person in the class. But it's pretty much a guarantee I'll improve once I get a little instruction.
I've got my swim cap, my pink googles, and my brand new swimsuit all ready to go.
