I'm currently on a bit of a down period in relation to my swimming and motivation. I'm trying to get it back but it could be a little while. I will still be posting semi-regularly and I will be slow answering questions, please be patient as this is a pretty bad time for me. Thanks for understanding :)
I've finally completed my article on nutrition for swimming! It includes general nutrition advice for swimmmes, nutrition tips for training and competition, school lunch ideas, meals plans, recipes and tonnes more advice which will provide you with knowledge that can help you improve your times!

I have not been active over the month for personal reasons. I am now taking a hiatus. I am unsure if I will be back on this blog in the near future. I’m sorry to disappoint but sometimes these things just happen :(
In the meantime, there are plenty of other sources to get motivation from. Other tumblr blogs, most importantly, and remember to keep on top of all the major worldwide swimming comps, you can learn a lot from the pros by studying how they race and watching their technique. I wish you all the best in your swimming endeavors and I’m truly sorry I won’t be around for the next month (probably at least 2) to see your improvements and be with you in your success!
Last words of advice: Always work your ass off in training, self-belief is the first step to success, your coach is your friend (talk to them, ask them for advice!), enjoy and appreciate the people in your club while you can (before you know it, some’ll leave due to school), and if you really want something, work for it.
I will really miss you all! :(
P.S. I may post on my personal blog during this time. You can find it here. Msg me on there and I will reply :-)
