It’s time for school once again after a nice five-week long break. Let me tell you a little bit about my winter break. I was home for only 10 days and left to join the RIT Swimming and Diving team on the bus two days after Christmas! I know it’s crazy, right? At first I was very uncertain about leaving home so early and going to Florida with the team, but I can say I’m glad I went. I had a blast with two practices a day outside in the beautiful sun and diving into a warm pool. The pool was so large that there was one 50-yard-length pool and another 25-yard-length pool with a diving board well attached on the side, and a dryland center for diving with a dry board, foam pit, and a trampoline. You get the picture.
After the week-long training trip, my team got back on the bus for a 24-hour ride on the way back to Rochester. The temperature dropped quickly…good thing I had a blanket when I slept. A lot of the swimmers/divers slept on the floor in the aisle or under the seats! We finished the season strong with few more meets and school started! We’re training for the states, regionals, and national championship from now on until March.
I can say it has been a good break, and I am now back at RIT taking tough classes with a tough and mind-boggling schedule on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Looking forward to having the sun come back out and warm up our Rochester homes. I miss the sun and the warmth. See how beautiful the sunset was during an afternoon practice with my teammate twisting in the air!
