swimmer compliments are the best bc it’s not shit like
“I like your outfit/hair”
it’s more like
“I wish I had your shoulder tan”
“omg I think your boobs grew!!”
“ughh I want your leg muscle!!

QuestionI started swimming not to long ago and as hard as i try my endurance(stamina?) is terrible any advice or work outs to help? Answer

Hey!! I recommend running as a dryland activity to help build stamina. as for in the pool, I would suggest sets of 10x100fr or 10x200 fr on a moderate interval just to build endurance. you should be breathing hard but not killing yourself. longer swims like 4x800fr would help too. kick is important for your endurance, bc at the end of your race you need to use your legs the most, so practice kick sets like 10x50s kick or 5x100s kick (again on a moderate interval). your endurance will get better as you slowly build up the distance you swim and the pace you swim at. keep going and good luck!! xx

The fact that they have yet to make a shampoo that won’t make your cap fall off makes me incredibly upset

Like we have to choose between fucking up our race or having the worlds supply of oil and grease on our head
