Cr@p Swimmers R Us

Re drills for technique - there are a couple of stretches here that will help.

The last stretch is esp good as it shows what should be happening with upper body. Important to stretch through the lats (ie the torso) rather than just trying to reach forward with the arm. Makes it easier to get the hand and arm in the right position.
Doing that stretch before a length and then focusing on continuing that stretch while swimming the length is a good way to getting good form.

Oh and to add, just noticed Swim smooth is a Western Aussie production... Which is my home .. I will take credit for the amazingness !! 

Spookily, Paul Newsome who founded SwimSmooth was at Bath University (which for a swimmer, seems to be a most appropriate university).

So you have made the opposite journey...

He was interviewed in the belief that he had highly sensitive or stolen information. He stayed with a known film maker who was working on this issue, and is the boyfrind of the guardian reporter, he admitted carrying journalistic materials, and so there was more than reasonable suspicion that would allow him to have been arrested under the Official Secrets Act or some other legislation.

Fair play to the security servcies

except that if you do hold someone for any time you should be very sure what legislation you do it under. You cant just hold someone and then pick and choose your grounds after. It was anti-terror legislation they used.

You may not have a jet lag issue for your next flights.

I used to get jet lagged flying to Aus. But felt fine when travelling back, and could readjust without problem

Political Correctness

Sometimes people see a PC agenda where there isnt one. Lot of the stories about christmas having been banned turn out not to be true.

Is reading a hobby?

I predict wins for Wales, France and Ireland.

England are probably the best team in this yrs 6N and the coach is doing the best job of any of the coaches...but it's about time some French unpredicability turned up. I predict it will be today ...
