Day 1 of Camp: Swimarama!

Finally it was my turn to swim. I jumped in to the pool and it felt like I was in a freezer. My first day at yr 5 & 6 camp for 2011 was spent at Swimarama. The exciting day started with swimming sports. I was really nervous as I was just about to start the heat for the freestyle. " Take your marks, GO!" Miss King shouted. Pushing off the wall, and kicking as hard as I could, I tried to hold my breath. Counting in my head, 1,2,3, breathe, I saw Ms Squires standing at the halfway mark. It felt like forever, but I finished the race and came.....1st!! I swam to the side of the pool and got handed a small blue card with a 1 on it as I hopped out.

  1. Sounds like you had an amazing time at the pool today Litia, thanks for sharing your experience. I was thinking of you guys all in the pool today and was very jealous as it was so hot.
    Enjoy the rest of your camp.

  2. Malo lava Litia! What a fantastic way to start your camp. I like how you describe the way you started the race. I'm not good at swimming or diving into pools, reading your post here gives me more of an idea of how I could start in a race. Maybe you could another post that could teach me more : ) Congratulations Litia. I think your amazing to be able to squeeze in this post in the jam packed camp you already have.

  3. Well done Litia on your race, you've obviously been doing lots of practice and training! It's great to see you have a post up about camp already and it was very well detailed about what happened on the first day. I look forward to what else you will share about camp.
