My First Post
Hey everyone! This is my first post, and I don't really have much in particular to say. Well, I suppose I can just go on about my day for a while, since I have nothing else to do. This morning I had to get up at 8:30, since I had swim practice at 9. I just joined the swim team this week, even though swimming season began at the beginning of the month. This was only my second practice...so it was pretty hard. I had to run for 20 minutes and then lift for 20 minutes. After that, it was into the pool for me! Now, at my school the swim team is known as a sadistic cult, but actually, it really isn't as bad as I thought....though the practices are definitely tough. I mean, for warm-up alone I had to do a 400 freestyle (16 laps), 200 with a kick board (8 laps), 200 pull (and I hate pull! For those of you who don't know, you put this foam thing between your legs and just use your arms to swim...but the foam thing keeps popping out of my legs!!) and another 100 freestyle (4 laps). And like I said, that was just the warm-up! After that we did breast and fly drills. It was my first time trying fly, and I bet I looked like a complete fool! I couldn't do it at all!! After drills it was time for the main set, which I won't even begin to describe. All you have to know was that I was incredibly exhausted after that! Luckily for me, since it was my second day, Coach let me stop there...so I didn't have to do the sprints, warm-down, and water polo. Instead, I got to take a long, hot shower, get changed and eat doughnuts! I had to have inhaled three in under a minute! I was starving. And after I got home, I had an entire bowl of Ramen! The whole reason for me joining the swim team was to lose some weight and develop a better body, but if I keep getting hungry like that and eating so much, just the opposite might happen! But other than swim practice my day has been pretty uneventful. I've been waiting to see Harry Potter, though! I can't wait until I'm finally able to go! I also want to see The Ring and Ghost Ship, and just about a million other movies. I'm a total movie addict, I could watch them forever!
Well, thanks for reading this and unless something else happens to me today, I'll be back tomorrow! Ja'ne!
