Because of some strange water and/or exercise phobia, I've never properly learned how to swim. Compulsory swim classes from my school years (many years ago) have long since been forgotten. On a good day with the wind blowing favourably, I can do 25m of freestyle without drowning. Five minutes rest, and a change in wind direction, mean that i can do the next lap. What I'd like, is to be able to drop in the pool for a leisurely (and non-epileptic looking) 20 laps of the pool. Currently I'm looking for a local pool with lessons catering for the adult learner, but I'd like to hear of other monkey's trials at learning to swim.
Curious George: Learning to Swim I'm wanting to learn how to swim. Any advice/stories?
