I have spent today sleeping and playing on my xbox after a busy week in Sheffield where I was competing at ASA Nationals. This is how my week went.
DAY BEFORE NATIONALS
I travelled down to Sheffield with my mam, dad, and two sisters. Once we checked into the hotel I meet my coach Danny Thompson at the pool for loosner set, after that it was off to Weatherspoons for tea, then back to the hotel for an early night.
I had to get up a 6.30, I had breakfast in the room which was porridge and pancakes with goldon syrup.
Then it was off to the pool for a 7 o’clock warm up, with the heats starting a 8.
Today was the 400 free, my favourite event, I am glad it was on the first day, as I was still fresh
I swam the 400 free in a time of 4.49.32, giving me a score of 701 disability points, I had swam a pb (personnal best) of 7.40 seconds. I was really pleased with my swim as it was a consideration time for World Class Developement – the next British Swimming Programme up from my current one and I had made the final.
So off to Pizza Hut for lunch, then back to the hotel for a nap in preparation for finals. Warm up was 3.30pm with finals starting at 5pm.
My final swim was ok but I put time on from the heats.
Finals over means tea time – so it was back to Weatherspoons.
