We interrupt this blog challenge for a swim lesson update.
I paid my money and was the first person to sign up. I had delusions of being the only person and getting private lessons for public price. Instead I was in a group of 5, 3 of whom were learning (deep water issues, face in water issues) myself and another person were comfortable and hoping to get better.
I'm not going to say it was a complete waste of time, but it wasnt thebest use of an hour of my time. I complained to the aquatic director explaining that I was not challenged. She offered to prorate me to private lessons but it was $200 DH and I had just had a discussion about needing to trim expenses.
If they dont split the class (basic adults/ adv adults) I am going to ask for my money back and just make a committment to swimming during open swim time. That would be a better use of my time.
For all of DogLady's protests, I dont think she is going to have to worry about me anytime soon. I might beat her out of the water, but she's totally going to smoke me on the bike. As all triathletes know, the tri is lost in the water or the run, but its won on the bike, where she excels. (And I dont)
