I nearly quit swim team yesterday because I had a horrible panic attack the day before that. However, I decided I was going to try to swim again yesterday while conducting an experiment: add Gatorade. It worked. I only had minor chest pain, but I finished! It felt really good and today is Fun Friday which means instead of doing an actual workout, we get to play games. Why? Because you never swim hard before a swim meet. I am dying my hair right now for the swim meet.
My hair is going to be green-blue up top and blue-black-purple on bottom. I don’t mean I’ll have striped of those colors, I mean that those are the two shades. I wanted shock blue, but it turned out kind of mermaid green, which is fine actually because it’s more swimmer; sea creature.
Also, thanks to my sister, I have a new pair of swim goggles and a funky swim cap which is hilarious because it had a small shark fin on the stop and it has a face with sharp teeth as it’s pattern. I am going to wear it to swim practice today.
Mom is going to schedule a doctors appointment to get my heart checked out, just to make sure that everything is okay. It was strange that she suggested we try this because she hates doctors. I don’t know when I will see the doctor but it should be soon.
