I'm so sorry this post is up so late & the fact that it isn't a beauty post - it's been such a busy first week back and it has completely slipped my mind to edit this whole post! I've had 0 time to plan a beauty post for you all which has annoyed me a lot - but I didn't want to let you guys down with no post to show! So I thought I would continue on with my London trips over the winter break and share the experience with you all.
Now a little fact about me, I couldn't swim until I was around 9/10 - I was petrified of water. I couldn't swim, HATED the deep end and basically anything to do with swimming and pools. But thankfully, I got taught lessons and finally got the confidence to swim & I hadn't felt that anxiety of water since then...but upon arrival to the pool - it was a completely different story!
The pool was 50m long - I can barely swim 25m let alone 50! And it was 3 metres deep.. Thats what scared me the most! I wouldn't be able to get out if I ran out of breath and what if everyones faster than me and I'd have to speed up? Those were the thoughts running through my head before taking a dip. I was so close to not doing it but I stood there and looked at the pool and thought "its the olympic pool, for goodness sake I'll probably only do this once in my life!" So I overcame my fears and just went in!
It was tiring doing one length, but the buzz of the place was so great you didn't feel pressured to do well or anything! They have different set lanes for different abilities which was such a relief for me (I went in the slow lane nearest to the walls;)) It was so amazing and I would definitely recommend it to those who enjoy swimming - its an experience that I will never forget! So I shall leave you some photos of that day and as always I'll see you in the next blog post,
