Facebook is great for social media and is good with memories groups.

It sucks as a forum replacement, no index being the biggest problem, posts get lost in posts within comments.

Got to keep it enjoyable, I just do the sprints for a bit of fun and a belief that you should practice bursts of energy just so you'll have some capacity if you ever need it.

Doing a fast 100 takes it out of you, all about pacing.
Do 25 metre sprints if you want to have some fun with speed, when that gets boring do 50's.

I haven't counted my strokes for a long time, I suspect it's over 20 for 25 metres, but at that count I can sprint 25 metres in under 20 seconds from a push off. Last time I raced my daughter in the...

I really have no idea so my answer is a question.

If you're not kicking And your heels are out of the water that'd have to be a good drag reduction.

A static problem, 10000 miles a year on a bike, I'd move on, sounds like you'd need both forearms out of the water to get flat from head to toe.

I'm betting you have no trouble getting flat when...

Frustrated with Ti

Late 40's learner, 52 now, never been fit, didn't do Ti.

Was talking about floating. Relaxing my body didn't help me float. Hands above head i.e stretched out longways did.

Think this will be true for a lot of people that haven't found floating easy.
