Swim lessons at least.

Last week I started swim lessons and was mightily disappointed. I was not challenged. (I can already swim, I want to get better!) I spoke with the Director that night and she was going to check into the class and call back. When I didnt hear from her I called back last night.

They DID decide to split the class and since the other person did not show up, I DID get a private lesson at public rates!

Turns out I'm already pretty good, just all the stuff I've figured out on my own, but there are a few tweaks that will improve it even more. Perhaps not 6 weeks worth of tweeks, but definitely an improvement over last week. And it gets me out of the house and having a regularly scheduled exercise time. You cant have everything, but "I have to admit, its getting better....a little better all the time."

A reminder and public service message: if you are not satisfied with something in your life, do something to change it!!

    I'm so glad you are getting a good deal for the money. Lessons are expensive and you should get what you pay for. Swim lessons were hugely helpful for me. Sometimes they were the only thing that kept me going in the water to practice.

  I think it's wonderful that you're taking lessons to see what tweaks you can make. I mean, there's typically room for improvement and growth in a lot that we do, right? Good for you for taking the plunge (literally and figuratively)!

    I've told that exact thing to so many people lately! If you don't ask for what you want, no one will know you want it!

    You're absolutely right. Sometimes, it is so much easier to complain about something than to step up and make the change. Good for you for pursuing this and getting what you needed. And every lap is one lap closer to those awesomely strong and sculpted swimmer's shoulders. I'm a touch jealous.
