Damn, noone from the first group passed the Bronze Medallion overall. Ha, I failed the first event by 15 seconds. 3:15 for you to strip off your clothing, take your bloody clothing with you and swim like freak to the other side of the pool to save your victim by towing her with your bloody clothing. I swear I saw stars after that, white little ones in my vision and my thighs hurt like knives because I swam freestyle with all my endurance (haha girl you could only survive on that for half a lap); normally during practice I used breast stroke. Was hyperventilating upon completing the tow. Sheesh, sucker. My timing improved a lot though, from 4:22 to 3:31. Sheesh.
Anyway, before the swimming part, the instructor took a loooong time on CPR. 2 hours. And then came the theory part. Half an hour. Not counting that he was late for half an hour. Thought I didn't need to do the rest of the events but the instructor didn't say anything. Oh, the instructor is really nice, far from how he looks and all. Not that kinda instructor who would fail you immediately for one mistake. He took effort to tell us on what went wrong and emphasized on the correct things to remember and all. And
he allowed us to wear goggles. =) Okay, luckily he's going to test us again. So I was already shagged after the first event; the second event nearly got me drowned. Got no breath to reassure my partner and then kept on sinking while contact-towing my partner and drank a lot and choke a lot. Damn, I thought I was going to die or something. Though the second event had no timing, it took me like forever to tow my victim by putting her head on my shoulder. And I did a really weird thing. Cannot 'tahan' then I released my partner twice and swam to the side to rest for a while. Lol.
And then luckily like a blessing, the instructor asked us to switch roles. By right, the events must be completed simultaneously and there's three events altogether. So had time to recover. Lol. But we did the third event like three times due to some error and all. Lol. So not much of a blessing actually. Shagged. Shagged, shagged! Third event was swim about one third of the pool so not so bad and this one can 'tahan' freestyle and surface dive down and go behind your 'unconscious' partner and extend-chin-tow her to the surface of the pool and do water resuscitation and land her. Luckily can wear goggles or else I could have failed the surface dive. Lol.
Damn, must do everything again and face the pain again. Hope the next round please don't make us swim at 12 noon with the blistering heat that made me dehydrated after the first event already. So burnt now. Freaking freaking tanned and dark red skin. Didn't apply sunblock, no time to apply. Sheesh. Must apply the next round. Must. And I'm bloody shagged.
