Antarctic struggle!!!

When the sliding doors parted, a rush of wind blew into my face. I smelt the stench of Chlorine, when I started to make my way to the changing rooms. I saw 3 swimmers skimming the surface while they were doing freestyle.

After I was changed, I strolled down to the edge of the pool. As I clambered in, I felt the coldness of the water, splash onto my skin. I heard Mr Harris’ demanding voice tell me to do a whole lap of the pool. I dove into the chilling water. My arms were forced to move through the Turbulence. I was trying to ignore the fact that I was freezing to death.

“Nearly there, Just a little bit more.....” I was chanting to myself. My heart was beating so fast that I thought it was going to pop out of my chest. My legs were aching, my arms were moving like they were windmills and I thought I was going to die. Then all of a sudden I hit a hard wall. I could feel the throbbing in my head. I can’t believe I was SO distracted that I bumped into the wall, that indicated that it was the end of this swimming session.

I came out of the changing rooms with eyes that were ruby red.I felt blind because every time the wind made contact with my eyes, they shut completely like traps. Making my way to school was even harder, It was like having a blind fold on, and the word bit about it I had no one to lean on.There was good news and bad news, the good news was that it was another done day at the swimming pools. The bad news: We still had 4 days to go until swimming was over. Well at least I got back to school...ALIVE!!!
