I feel pretty disappointed. I've been taking swim lessons since early December and I have seen no improvement in speed. Endurance is up a whole lot and apparently my form is considerably better but the number just aren't coming down. I have accepted that I may be looking at a 45 minute swim at Beaverdam but it's still pretty discouraging.
