I am going to tell you about the swim camp I am doing this week. I am going to write a different blog post per day about swim camp. The camp starts at 8:30am and ends at 3:00pm but since today was the first day we arrived a little early. The camp is four days long and each day we focus on one of the strokes. Monday’s stroke was freestyle.
When we got to the pool we waited in line to get a swim cap that has my name on it and a t-shirt. Then the head of the camp told us what the rules of the camp were. After that was done we went inside the auditorium to watch some videos of freestyle. When we were done watching the videos we went back to where our bags we and put on our caps and goggles and went to our lanes. I was in lane four. After warm ups, we did freestyle drills for the next two hours. After two hours of swimming, we got out of the pool and put on clothes and tennis shoes and did exercises on the side of the pool for half an hour. After dryland, we had lunch. For lunch I had an egg, apples, sandwich, bar, and pretzels that had peanut butter in them. After half an hour, we reapplied our sunscreen. At 1:00pm, we went back into the pool. In the afternoon, we got filmed underwater and a coach gave us feedback. We also practiced our starts and did relays.
If you want to read more about my swim camp, come back tomorrow to see what I did on Tuesday.
