Re: The don'ts of triathlon swimming

That's a neat blog entry but why are they so anti-breathe every 3rd stroke? When I'm working hard (sprinting) or encounter waves or splashy people, I'll breathe every 2nd or to the opposite side of the obstacle but when I'm in a steady groove, I breathe every 3rd naturally. What's wrong with this? ...

Re: 2013 Around The Bay

Anyone have an extra spot in their carpool going down to ATB ? Have someone looking still ... suggested to her to start looking in early January and gave me that look of terror :shock: ... "... it's 3 months away ... too early to start worrying about transportation and hotel accomodations .......

Re: Chlorine issues

As for the dry hair, you can try Triswim shampoo (there are other brands out there). It has additional moisturizers compared to regular shampoo. Some online swim stores sel...
