Tuesday Dec 16th 2008

Today I heard some swimmers (the French and others) wore 3 tech suits at once in their races at the European SCM Championships, which might be one of the reasons for breaking WRs
FINA is likely to issue a rule by March 2009 banning swimmers from wearing more than one swim suit in a race.
Stacking suits increases flotation.

Tomorrow I'm going to do a
50 free fast in practice while wearing 3 or 4 suits
We'll see what happens.
Should I do 3 50's
1) 1 suit or 3 suits
2) 2 suits,
3) 3 suits or 1 suit

I'm going to work on Speed and Strength from now till Mid February.

Ande, I would try 2 suits. I would worry about the compression of 3 suits restricting my movement. But then I don't own a tech suit and have never worn one so who am I to comment!

Will be interested in the results of the experiment, though.

Hope all is going well.
