I use Speedo and Tyr goggles, haven't had a problem with either sort. Mr. IW uses them too, and the new Seal mask goggles for long open water swims.

Any advice on how to avoid the marks left round my eyes from the goggles? I've tried loosening them, but then they leak. I use Speedo ones btw.

Talking of goggles ... a friend and her daughter had a high speed collision in the pool last night - 10 year old's goggles connected with mum's shoulder... wow, you should have seen the bruises. Especially on the shoulder. Never realised that goggles could be used an offensive weapon.

both are OK, btw but I think will be carrying the battlescars for a few days!

No, but I bet it's bad! I kicked hubby in the chest while I was doing breast-stroke the other week. Wow, what a bruise. never realised I had such a hard kick

and they're probably right.. the speed you go ;)

i got all out of sync with the main sets last night and ended up pushing off for a swimming drill into someone doing kick.. had some near misses!

Will - John says using the Seal mask gives you much more all-around vision, which is great in open water.

EdM - paddles can be dangerous, John and another swimmer collided head-on and John got such a bad cut on his shoulder he still has a scar there more than 2 years after!

anyway.. not to mention the damage you can do yourself using them
