Changing room embarrasment desensitisation by Sylvia Else
This notion was prompted by a discussion I had today with a friend. Some people seem very uncomfortable with their temporary state of undress in changing rooms. Sometimes they're trying to get changed under a towel so as to avoid any exposure. From my own perspective as someone involved in...

Workout rotine through the year! by Nelson
A question for seasoned swimmers. On workouts, do you know beforehand what will be the workout in a specific day? Or, it is always a surprise? Do you repeat the same workout rotine during a year, in a planned pattern? Or is it just a coach's decision? Comments? I am sure different swimmers have...

The "Other" Pool Chemical - "Nitrate"? by [email protected]
We've used chlorine and now bacquacil. I've heard that there's another system -- I believe it's silver nitrate based, but I may be wrong -- that's cheaper and more effective for SOME pools and water types. We are in unincorporated land and use well water. It's not bad -- bit of iron, use a...

Scoop by [email protected] (Larry Weisenthal)
Recently, Chris Carmichael (LA's coach) was a speaker at Yale. My younger daughter eagerly went to hear him speak. I'd asked her to ask him a question, if she had the opportunity, to wit: "Will LA ever compete in the Hawaii Ironman?" She did ask him the question, then bought a copy of his book...

The Omnivore's Dilemma by Man o' Tea
'You hear plenty of explanations for humanity's expanding waistline, all of them plausible. ... But it pays to go a little further, to search for the cause behind the causes. Which, very simply, is this: When food is abundant and cheap, people will eat more of it and get fat.' -Michael Pollan,...

run + swim = successful crosstrain by [email protected]
Finally instead of griping I got good news for myself... Someone suggested you get a lot of cross training benefit for swimming by running--worked a treat for me. I started running to the pool and back for my swim, not even one week and I noticed I can swim better. Before that, I must have been...

more gripes: chlorine by [email protected]
Now I found out that this stuff can make your teeth yellow (by any chance because it's chemically similar to fluorine, which teeth absorb?) and other annoying things. Does it affect me if I swim about 45 min/day? Ask the district council to change pools to ozone? Seb

tiny gripe about boredom, etc. by [email protected]
Good news: after keeping it up for a few months, my endurance has got better and I can swim up to an hour at a reasonable pace with only 1 quick break. Bad news: I usually cop out after 45 min even though I can go longer, because before I get too tired, I get too bored going back and forth the...
