Olympic Aches

24 Feb

The art of swimming, just like riding a bike can never be forgotten, once you get the hang of it; you never really forget.

Took 2 days off, one of those days i dedicated to training for the olympics…so i get up early one morning, butterflies in my fingers and march off to the training area… the first thing i noticed: the pool had no bars and no steps into or out of the pool…

Sat at the edge for close to 20 minutes debating on if i should just kick the water all day, i think it was the look in my sis eye that made me jump in..stood in one place for another 10 minutes (I know, ridiculous – but this was the first time i was swimming in a year or two: Water isn’t supposed to be that cold)

Anyway so i get around to swimming and playing or playing then swimming – when we had to leave, i just couldn’t get out of the pool, tried to do what the kids were doing, hoisting themselves up using the edges as support…

Now 24 hours later, me old bones r screamin murder!!!

    Socks!!…bambi some one did not tell you you have to stretch a bit before attempting such a fit? Like all active things, you need to prep the body a bit.

    But yeah, I’d taken a while without seeing water and when I went into the ocean, I could still remember how to avoid drowning

    If you do not go back and swim, the pain will get worse before it gets better. But you will survive.

    u had a crappy PE Teacher…ours is always stressing the importance of streaching b4 any kind of exercise…it can develop into a bio lesson too sometimes.
