50 things….crossing off #26

Ok so I’m not going to earn any medals but I think, seeing as I have been down at the local indoor pool swimming laps for 30-40min every Thursday afternoon for the last 3 weeks now, that it is safe to say that I can actually swim properly.  Perhaps not well or fast but I can definitely swim.

Given that I had a few lessons as a child and then didn’t swim at all from 8yrs old til the start of this year I think that is something to be proud of.  I am amazed (and very thankful) that so many people who heard I was learning to swim didn’t laugh at me as I had anticipated but praised me for doing it instead. I am gaining confidence and fitness every day I swim and owe a lot to all my friends who encouraged me with this one.

So thats 7 out of 50 crossed off now with 43 to go…

I will be 50 in about 170 months so 170/43 = 3.95….so I guess if I keep crossing one thing off every 3-4 months I will make it
