chlorine is gonna kill me

Lots of competition this weekend..

Friday..

Today I went to school. AP World was kinda hard because we had to write a DBQ essay.

For lunch I had a sandwhich then I headed to the pool.

Today is our first swim competition for high school. I walked into the pool and saw a list on the wall on the events that we are swimming. I am gonna swim a 6×50 freestyle relay and a 4×50 breastroke relay.

I was pretty happy with the events that I was swimming since they are two of my favorite strokes.

Around 2, I had my first event.  My team was RJ, Quinn, Jose, Mac and Chase. We went against DP, SM, Buena and Ventura and ended up getting 3rd place.

Right after that event, I had my next one. This one kinda sucked because when I finished my first 25m, I smacked my face on the wall. It’s okay though because we got 2nd place.

In the beginning I was really nervous, but in the end, I thought it was really fun. We are going against Thousand Oaks next Wednesday.

JV boys ended up tying 1st place with another school.

Looking forward to the next comp.

 

After the swim meet I went over to my friend, Bens house.

We just hungout and listened to music and later, Tanner came over.

Later that day, we met up with our friends Lily, Haley, Caitlyn and Keely. We all went to San Roque to another friends house which was kinda fun but I was really tired.

We got picked up around 10 by Ben’s sister and went home.

I was exhausted at this point and decided to go to bed.

Overall a good day

Saturday..

We woke up around 8 and listened to “Box of Rain” by the Grateful Dead on Ben’s record player.

We got up and Ben made us a smoothie and we hung out in his living room for a while. Comment below if you like smoothies. Ben played the guitar and Tanner and I hung out with his cats, Harry and Tiki.

It was a really nice morning and the weather was perfect.

I got picked up by my dad around 10:30 and we went to go wash my dog at Hendry’s beach.

We got donuts at Eller’s and went home.

I decided to work on my DBQ essay so I made my self a sandwhich and started writing.

A hour went by and I finished most of the essay but I decided to do the rest on Monday night.

Around 2, I decided to go to the skatepark and hangout with my friend Moses.

It was a pretty good skate day until I fell really hard.

I decided to go home and sleep.

Sunday..

Today I woke up at 6 and drove to starbucks to meet up with my friend Kai and Colton.

Today I have 3 scrimmages down in Agoura.

game

We drove down and got there around 9. No one was there so we just walked around and sat by the pool. Around 9:30 everyone started showing up.  We got in at 10:00 and started warming up. We had our first scrimmage against LA Premier C team. It was a pretty fun game and we ended up winning 11-2.

We had our next game in an hour. It was really cold while waiting. We played LA Premier A team and they were a lot better than the first team. We lost 6-9. Finally we played the Titans, and lost again 6-9.

Overall it was a really fun day and we got the Habit afterwards. I got dropped off by Kai’s dad and took a nap. I was exhausted.

Later that night I watched netflix and went to bed.

Tuesday..

Today we have a swim meet against Thousand Oaks!

I was pretty excited since it was really hot out. I walked into the pool deck and walked up to the list of the events.

200 Medley Relay

200 Freestyle

200 Freestyle Relay

100 Breast Stroke

UGHHHHHHH. 200 free will kill me.

My first event, I swam a 50 fly in the relay and it wasn’t too bad. We ended up getting 3rd place. Then came the 200 free…

I stepped up on the block and heard the referee say “On your marks, get set..”

Oh god

BEEP

I dove in and started swimming, the first 100 wasn’t too bad but then on the 3rd 50 I started getting really tired.

By the time I finished I felt like a dead fish.

I got out the pool and collapsed onto a bench.

Worst thing ever.

I had about an hour break and then my next event was a 50 free in the 200 Freestyle Relay.

It wasn’t too bad.

Finally about 20 minutes later, I had my last event, the 100 breast stroke. I think I got like 4th place.

Overall it was a really fun swim meet but I got really tired.

I went home and slept immediately.

 

Really long week full of swimming and waterpolo.

The chlorine is killing me.
