Hey I was scrolling through your log and saw you posted a photo of NSu's pool, were you at Shark Invite? I'm a swimmer for NSU :)
Yeah I was there! I love your pool.

To the last anon, I know how you feel. The same thing happened to me! But my coach called me out in front of all my teammates saying that I'm slow and that I'll never be like my brother. I stood up for myself saying a coach was supposed to motivate his or her athletes. You should switch clubs or just confront him!
good for you standing up for yourself!
I know my coach is supposed to push me to do well but he is rude and doesn't care if he hurts your feelings at all. I used to have confidence in my swimming but now I have none. I come home crying everyday because I'm always being told I'm not good enough and I will not make it far in this sport. He made me lose the love I have for swimming with fear.
can you switch clubs? that is not how a coach should make you feel. don’t let him stop you from recognizing your full potential…your mind will quit long before your body ever will. and swimming should be fun, overall!

Hey I was wondering if you could help me. I'm a relatively new swimmer and I'm looking to shave off some weight. Because I'm a little bulky for a swimmer. I was wondering if you could help me. Also if you could make it something I could possibly do at home. Sorry for the bother. And thank you.
Eat clean, lift weights! If you don’t have any at home, you can do body weight stuff like pushups, yoga, or get a pullup bar to put in your doorframe. But seriously, eating clean is a big part of seeing results. Swimmers need to eat a little differently than crossfitters, for example, because we do so much cardio that we need a lot of carbs. Avoid processed foods, don’t drink soda, and include fresh fruits + vegetables in your day.

This blog is so helpful! It rekindled my love and appreciation for swimming and i am going to continue to improve until i can one day compete at a higher level than college swimming.
I’m glad to hear it. Nothing is impossible, go for it :)
