Diving euphoria

This morning, I and two friends (Martin and Joakim) walked through the rain to the station to catch the train to Norrköping. Martin had an errand there and we thought it would be nice to accompany him and take the opportunity to swim and dive some. Here, all indoor facilities are closed during the summer and it is annoying not being able to dive at all for two consecutive months. Once in Norrköping, three friends of Martin’s joined us.

In general, the trip was satisfactory indeed, but instead of retelling everything that happened, I will focus on the diving (video shots of diving earlier this spring). Not only was it nice to leave town for a while, but to dive again was pure pleasure. There is a ten-metre diving tower and having previously only jumped once from that height, I had to do at least something new. I began by jumping from 7.5 and 10 metres and not having any difficulties at all, I proceeded with diving from both heights. Still not experiencing any problems (it was actually more comfortable landing head first that feet first), I had to do something else.

I can easily do one-and-a-half forward somersault from 5 metres and after a slight miss the first attempt, I could do it from 7.5 metres as well. The difficult step was to perform the same maneuver from 10 metres. By that time, I had acquired a small audience cheering me on, so really, I had no choice. After doing three dives with adequate control, I finally did one-and-a-half forward somersault from 10 metres as well. According to the others, it was a fairly good dive as well. The feeling afterwards reminds me of why I like diving so much!

    Till att börja med så var det riktigt trevligt idag. Härligt att göra något annorlunda tillsammans. Sen så var det riktigt ballt att se dig hoppa. Grattis till det lyckade 10m hoppet!

    Ja, det var verkligen trevligt. Som sagt kul att komma iväg och göra något utöver det vanliga. Hoppningen var extremt rolig och jag är fortfarande lite hög :) Klad hest!

    Jag är ju som bekant inte särskilt förtjust i bad men även jag hade riktigt trevligt idag. Halvkontrollerat plaskande är helt okej och med trevligt sällskap är det förstås ännu bättre. Har dock lite dåligt samvete för att jag bara struntade i er efter käkandet.

    Ja, trevligt sällskap är bra att ha och gör det mesta trevligt. Jag tycker inte att du ska ha dåligt samvete för det, vi var ju ändå på väg hem. Eller hur menar du?

    Jag vägrar att tro att ni kan ha roligt utan mig!
