Front Crawl, Back Crawl, or just plain End-Up-Crawling

Now then. I suppose it is time to tell my coach I am struggeling, but then again, it's my fault!!

After every swim I am exhausted and to be honest I am not seeing much of an improvement because after every session, I just want to go to bed! I am pretty sure that this is a very bad sign, but then again, I've never really taken much notice to signs, like when Morrison's had a 'Slippery Floor' sign up, I walked past it and slipped, but that might just be because I'm a little clumsy; I have had some support, people saying 'keep going' and one saying 'drown and I'll give you a fiver' (thanks for that by the way-my History teacher is so kind) but even then I am a little down hearted. The challenge gets closer and closer, a little bit like judgement day. No, not like judgement day, that's too dramatic. Like a day when an important exam is coming up but however hard you have revised you just don't feel ready enough.

The next time someone asks how my training is going, I will try and force a smile, but deep down inside I have a sinking feeling that won't go away, as the title suggests I am lagging behind

I apologise for the shortness of this post, but apart form exams and Grease rehearsals, not a lot is going on!
