Wow, did I really start this thread in 2008? Incredible. And after 6 years of lap swimming (only during the off season, though), I'm finally taking my FIRST swim lesson today. I haven't had one since I was in summer camp a million years ago, and I'm sure there are sooooo many things I could be doing a lot better. My goal is to improve my swimming efficiency. I'm really excited. Funny -- my mom said, "But don't you already know how to swim?" How many of us have gotten the same reaction when we say we're going to take a ski lesson?
