Anonymous asked: I've been swimming like my whole life but all of a sudden all I want to do is quit and it's freakin me out and idk what to do cause all these people have put time and money into helping me swim and now I don't like it help me what do I do??

I know what it’s like.. I wanted to quit too, just gave up on everything. But if you want to quit just  do so, if you keep going just because you feel like you have to it will be an even bigger waste of time and money, right? And if quitting doesn’t feel right you can always come back!

Anonymous asked: what do you wear after morning practice? do you shower before school? do you get dressed at the pool? could you tell me the routine of what happens after morning practice before school, sorry i'm just a non-swimmer trying to understand.:)

Haha well I hated the combo morning practice + school cause it made me super tired until lunch and then I went hyper, until the last lesson where I just laughed at everything.. Anyways, the routine pretty much went like this:

1. Wait at least five minutes to get in the ice cold pool
2. Swim swim swim just keep swimming
3. Get up, stretch down, take a quick shower
4. put up hair in a swimmer bun, put on comfy but still good looking clothes
5. Drink some kind of protein shake (second breakfast)
6. Rush to school and eat third breakfast
7. Try to get through the day without falling asleep.

Hope this helped a little bit my non-swimmer friend!
