Spent a night or two in a hotel room and a guest pass at the local YMCA… not quite there, but officially closer than I have ever been! Waiting to have consistent access to a pool (or be able to afford to join the Y.) 1 week ago

I’ve decided to check this off because I can swim, just not well. My new focus must be becoming a stronger swimmer. Summer is (almost) back and that makes me happy. Two weekends in a row in the pool now thanks to living in an apartment complex with both inside and outside pools. My weak swimming skills have opened me to the world of marco polo, water wrestling, and surely other pool games to come. If this isn’t something you’ve accomplished, I encourage you to get at it. My 1st teacher told me that most people need to take 2-3 classes (series) before mastering this. Be encouraged. 1 month ago
I began taking swimming instruction 5 weeks ago for 1/2 hour every Monday. I can now glide and swim a little bit. I just need to learn to turn my head and breathe. I’m so excited! 2 months ago
I went to the local gym to try out swimming by myself.
Good news: I am really confident in water. I panic far less than I used to before!
Bad news: I definitely need more practice. I am targeting to go once a week to the local gym before I go back to my gym next month. 5 months ago
I have been on the Crash Course the last couple of evenings. I still fear that I will drown (like that is possible in like 1.5m of water!).
I enjoy floating in the water, but hate it when it gets into my nose/ears/eyes… ewww
I have 2 more classes to go. I am hoping I will have got rid of my fear of drowning at least by that point. 5 months ago
So I booked for my Swimming Crash Course at my gym next week. Looking forward to it! 6 months ago
I added this goal just yesterday and today coincidently at my gym they are offering adult swimming crash courses for beginners this month.
The Universe is sending me a message ;-) 6 months ago
What the goal means to me?
I want to be able to swim at least at 2m depth for 10mins.
3 reasons why I want to do this…
1. I am missing out on some things in life like enjoying the beach, scuba diving etc because I cannot swim.
2. Swimming is a good exercise.
3. I want to conquer my fear of drowning
How do I plan to progress with this goal?
I am planning to attend swimming lessons at my gym or the local leisure centre.
When do I see myself taking this off my goal list?
Once I am able to swim by myself with no/minimal supervision.
I am estimating that I will be able to do this after 20hrs of swimming practise sessions. 6 months ago
