Getting Along Swimmingly

Maru and I had our first swimming lesson this morning at the Romulus Athletic Center. The facility is very nice and it’s exterior is similarly styled to Detroit Metro Airport’s MacNamara terminal. We arrived 10 minutes to 8, however with getting our gear on and stuff stashed in a locker we were late getting out to the pool… >_>;

The class was low key with only 5 students and lead by a young male instructor named Dave.  Just having his insight about swimming basics helped me understand what I’ve been doing wrong since I took lessons as a kid. (No wonder I was always getting water up my nose!) After trying out floats, glides and backstroke, the instructor said since our class is progressing fast we will start in the lap pool next week! Can’t wait!
