Exercise increases the blood flow to the brain and the good news is that Madison achieved top marks in both her higher mathematics and history yearly assessment. Super cool. As I have read that a decrease in exercise will also reduce the blood flow to the brain and with it the stimuli I won’t be reducing Madison’s swimming schedule anytime soon.
As swimming can even repair damaged brain tissue in older people, it must have wonderful effects on young brains too.
I have heard from many parents who have kids in the GCSE-range-age, that they reduce swimming to 3 times per week but we won’t be doing this.
Madison spends literally most of her free time in the pool or volunteering or attending swimming meets and that has no detrimental effect on her school work at all.
