The smell of chlorine filled the classroom. Grabbing my togs, I packed them away, ready to go swimming. I couldn’t wait!
Finally! Grasping my bag, I lined up ready to SWIM. Arriving at the pools, I immediately rushed to get changed.
Hopping in the pool, I felt a shiver run up my spine. First, like usual, we did two laps. Pushing off the wall, I felt myself glide through the water. Getting close to the end I felt someone nearly kick me in the face!
“As challenging as it is, I think I could probably do it”, I thought to myself. Our Instructor told us that we were going to try and swim 6 whole lengths non-stop! “Nevermind I can’t do it!”
Luckily, we got to choose how swam. Straight away I yelled out backstroke! Laying my back on the water, I pushed off and then started to kick. Coming close to the end I spied the flags above me. Quickly heading back to the other side, I saw everyone going past me. Reaching the flags, I felt someone coming close to me. Finally, I reached the end. “Oh” I groaned as the next room walked in. Time to get out.
Tired but happy, I walked back to class waiting for the next day. I couldn’t wait. “Hopefully I’ll be able to swim 6 lengths by Friday” I thought to myself.
