I know how you feel and it’s soo frustrating! Talk to your coach because if he knows what you’re going through he’ll hopefully try to help you and will be more sensitive to your feelings, instead of just putting you in relays. Starting a dryland routine should also help if you don’t already have one. And I know you’ve probably heard this but just make sure you’re pushing yourself in practice. You never want to feel “comfortable.” If you think you can go faster, do it. If you don’t think you can go faster, do it also.

Hey, thanks so much! Goals should be something difficult but achievable, and then you have to break it down into manageable steps to get there. And as for starting again, you just have to just go for it. The sooner you start and the more often you train and the harder you work, the sooner you’ll be back in shape. There really is no easy way to just slip back in or any shortcuts you can take to make the process easier. It’ll all be worth it though. Good luck!
High school swimming varies by high school. For us high school swimming, even varsity because there was no jv, was a joke, although it was still fun and if you can’t join a club team it’s better than nothing. If you’re lucky and find a high school team with a good coach, though, it would be just as good I’m sure. :)
Well 25 yards isn’t an event where I live but a good time really depends on you individually. Either way it’s great that you’re dropping time! You’re going to get better as long as you keep working on it and trying your best in practice. Taking a few breaths as possible is definitely helpful, as well as having a strong kick and fast arms. Make sure you also are grabbing the water and pulling it underneath you, right about at your belly button line. In other words you want a high elbow catch, so you’re pulling as much water as possible and your strokes are efficient. If you want me to explain that in more detail I’d be happy to, just message me!
