He assured me I did really well. <BR> <BR> I decided to focus on the days' lesson; don't think, just do it. <BR> Before he had a chance to ask me, I submerged myself in the water to get compl...

The boyfriend wasn't up to it. <BR> <BR> I had Instructor Steven to myself today, which was exciting at first, then a bit nerve wrecking. <BR> <BR> I'll start by confessing: I drank a lot of water today. It seems when I'm in panic mode I have the natural reaction of gasping. Yes, even while I'm under water. <em>198</em> <BR> <BR> My glides went well, right until he had me hold my arms around my mid-section, to glide armless. Panic mode. <BR> <BR> I got to pract...

I'm blaming the earthquake we had at 4am. It wasn't big, but we live pretty close to the epicenter of it. <BR> <BR> Notice how I'm holding on to the edge of the pool while Steven is giving me instructions: <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/5/l1518878109.jpg"> <BR> I just can't seem to let go. <BR> <BR> We practiced me tapping the bottom of the pool with my bottom, aka sitting: <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.c...
