I used to go swimming but I stopped because my teacher wasn't moving me up when I was clearly good enough to move to the next level and also you had to get up really early in the morning (I liked lie ins) and also because of my periods. But its been over 2 years and I really want to start again, its my dream to do something to do with swimming even if it means staying in the same set or waking up early. It was also like the only thing I'm good at! so its such a big regret me stopping. I want to start again but I'm not comfortable with using tampons or anything like that what could I do about it?!
If you are dedicated and want to do it, all those things are IRRELEVANT. Great athletes do whatever it takes to get good. You, excuse me, sound like a whiner, Oh I had to get up early, my periods. I'm sorry but if you really want it, work for it. You talk a lot, but you're not actually doing it. It's sacrifice to get really good. But you'll be very happy once you've tried your best. Good luck.
I know this isnt going to help but I want to know too.
lol it sucks x
