Dan M:

I think much of the debate on eating prior to swimming depends on the timing of your last meal and what time of the day you swim. For those of us swimming prior to 6:00 a.m. our last meal...

I need to have something in my stomach before I swim. Otherwise I get dizzy after 30 minutes of my 60 minute workout.

Causality or Correlation

David:

I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV, but are you sure that the erosion of your tooth enamel is due to unclean water at your pool?

My guess is that it may be more related to diet,...

It's all mental

Swimming is unique

I think that linking thermal issues to being exhausted after swimming is not necessarily valid. I have biked and ran in cold weather (sub-freezing) but still don't experience the same fatigue as I do...

Flowersnapper:

Terry really does have awesome abs, but the underwater camera adds 10-15 pounds, thus distorting his six-pack.
