Cold Swimming Lessons
On a rainy day, at school, in the afternoon, when Mr Waller took us swimming at the pool, I felt like I was in Antarctica. As I slid in the icy water the coldness quickly snatched my breath away. I shivered around the cold freezing swimming pool. I powered up to warm myself but still I was cold. Goose bumps grew bigger and bigger and almost looked like lumps on my body. I couldn’t help it. I didn’t have much energy but I forced myself to use it. So I hoped out and staggered to the changing rooms. I quickly got changed and ran to lie in the sun. My back was burning but I didn’t care.
