Should You Go To Swim Practice Today?

Every swimmer knows that to excel in the sport of competitive swimming you must practice on a regular basis. But, sometimes athletes need breaks to recharge from the 'daily grind' of the swim season.

This quiz will tell you whether or not you should skip practice today given your current situation (not feeling well, injury, sickness, excessive homework, etc.)

I have a physical injury (swimmer's shoulder, pulled muscle...)
I have a ton of homework I need to finish
I don't know. I honestly just need a break.
5. How bad are the circumstances in the last question? BE HONEST! For an example: If you answered in the previous question that you feel sick, rate 1-5 how sick you feel.
1 (I don't really feel that sick/tired/sore or I don't have a lot of pain from the injury)
2 (I feel sick/tired/sore, but it's nothing that I couldn't deal with)
3 (I don't feel that well right now, but a good swim wouldn't hurt)

8. How will your coach react if you skip practice today?

My coach will understand, they know I have an injury
They won't mind
I'm not sure
9. If you were to go to practice today, is there a way that you could 'fix' the practice so that it would be more manageable for you? For an example: If you have a shoulder injury, you could ask your coach to kick during sets that may hurt your shoulder.
Yes
No
10. Is skipping swim practice a habit for you? BE HONEST!
No, not at all! I usually go to practice everyday!
I wouldn't call it a habit, but I do take breaks often
Not really, I only skip practice if I need to
Yeah, I tend to skip practice even if I don't need to

Easy - moderately hard
Some of it is hard, but it's manageable
My practice is really hard but I'm mentally tough
My practice is really hard and most of the time I can't handle it
I don't know (choose this if it is a new season or if you have never done swim team before)
12. Do you HONESTLY think that you should skip today?

Yes, but I feel kind of guilty for skipping
No, now that I think about it I don't really need a break today
