Terrible swim meet

Postby Megafrost » Sat Dec 14, 2002 8:58 pm

Gah...today's swim meet went terrible. I wasn't swimming that great at all, and I only did well on one event. I guess that's what happens when the pool doesn't have a warm-down pool(which is absolutely necessary to have a good day at the meet).

I have to swim at the same pool tomorrow...

It's one of the smallest competition pools that I have ever seen. It's 25 yards long, and it's only wide enough for 6 lanes instead of the usual 8. Not to mention the place where you dive in is only 4-6 feet deep. :\

Hmmm .... *doesn't know a thing about swimming so can't comment on the structure of the pool*

However, I'm sorry you had a bad day ... are you still sick? Maybe that was a factor? I dunno ... anyways, better luck tomorrow!!! ^_^

Nah, I recovered from that sickness sometime last Wednesday and forgot to post about it. :oops:

The biggest factor was probably the fact that I couldn't do an easy warm-down swim after each event, and the tiredness probably built up as the meet went on.

If the meet suddenly changed locations, I'd know that I'm not in the real world. :p

I just remembered another factor that could've influenced my meet...I only went to 3 swim practices this week instead of the usual 5...

One would think extra swimming would just make you more tired. :p

Bah. As far as I can tell, olympic-level swimmers swim at least twice as often as I usually do. The human body can handle alot more than you think it can. :p

Oh god...today was even worse! There was just nothing that I could do to prevent missing my best time by 10-15 seconds... I wasn't getting enough rest in between events and I was feeling exhausted right before each event(except for the first one)... :(

That's what dad said...he said he could tell from my voice that I still wasn't completely fine...that's probably what happened to my swim meet...

aw poor megafrost :(
are you still going to swim meets like that, or are you going to rest a bit before you go again?

I think my next swim meet is actually in January, so I've got quite a bit.

If by warm-up, you mean warm-up right before each event, no. :lila:

There was the usual meet warm-up before the actually meet begins.
