Made it through with only one brief anxiety attack, a quart of poolwater in one gulp, one leg cramp, and lots of goggle failure but all in all, a good swim session. Even though I probably outweigh most of the women by 20 lbs, I was NOT the slowest or last. In fact, the coach gave us a little "pool etiquette" talk because I slowed down rather than pass a lanemate. I like the coaching style of the coaches- my previous coach was a real hardass. the correct etiqutte is to pass, or even to tap their feet to signal. She was going rather slow, and I literally stopped a couple times to give her more space. I mentioned today about how when we swam our fifty, I was 6 seconds slower on the second round. When i had a little anxiety, i slowed my pace to regain composure,which is important in the Danskin when you are in the middle of the lake.
Today I was focusing on the possibility of popping out of my swimsuit- that's what happens when the suit is comfortable dry, it's loose in the water- too much drag.

And then there is bumper's suggestion-
On SWAT swim days it's that attempted drowning thing. Makes everyone get a better workout. You should suggest it. Or just implement!

Did you do Iron Chicks last year? You should tell me how it is. I'm kinda emotionally tied to Team Danskin right now, but maybe I'll branch out in the future some time. The 3 workouts a week is appealing.
