Swimming season occurs at the most bizarre time of the year, winter. That should not be the time to be in a pool. People are aware of that, but that isn’t stopping coaches from having the swimmers swim in numbing, cold water.
Many swimmers have been complaining about muscle aches, and how the water is so cold that they can only be in there for a small amount of time. All of this happened because the heater of the pool broke.
This should not be a situation swimmers go through. They already have to practice during the winter, and it doesn’t help that the water is freezing cold. They should instead be able to enjoy long practices in warm water like little fish.
Instead, they are tired of being on land everyday doing something that fish don’t do. An example of land practice includes running. Common knowledge is that running and swimming are alike in the sense that they both require lots of resistance.
However, swimmers shouldn’t be doing what people in track do. That’s why they’re in swimming in the first place. I strongly suggest that this problem is fixed as soon as possible so that our numbed swimmers may be able to enjoy a regular day at the pool.
