If I could do 3 or 4 lengths without stopping, I'd probably have to go & lie down in an oxygen tent afterwards!!

Back in the pool tonight & did 500m for the 1st time this year. I think the presence of the eye candy helped! Still slow, taking lots of breaks & my style is crap but am working on the stamina at the moment.

Amazing what the over 60s aquarobics class can do to motivate you, eh?

I just managed my first full session on Tuesday night without resorting to the slow drowning action of my breaststroke.

It's great to be able to actually do the whole thing front crawl isn't it?......

I dunno - still on the breaststroke at the mo. Well done to FFM & Melsie though!

I had the new swimshop catalogue come yesterday: there's bags of great stuff in it, including a lap counter and LOADS of gear that'll really do your swimming wonders.

Some of the stuff has just been released for the first time commercially(in uk at any rate).

Am getting my xmas list drawn up as we speak!
12/11/2004 at 19:23

12/11/2004 at 19:24

Go get the hip belt they sell.I am soooooo very excited about this.It should make massive differences to your swimming.

I have spent years trying to a)get one or b)make on, but to no avail!

Now they do one for about 17 quid.What a bargain!
12/11/2004 at 20:13
what does it do then?
12/11/2004 at 20:17
Basically, most people dont realise that the power in swimming comes from an effective hip snap.It has two wings which provide resistance until the hips have rotated enough.Teaches feel for the water and makes you twist sufficently.

Makes you look like an alien or a jet fighter, but hey, if it makes you swim faster...!!
