Where's the science?

Pff. What? A couple of anecdotes used to promote a specific event aren't enough science for you? Sheesh. :bolt:

Where's the science?Okay, except for the lack of science, anything revealed or any reference to the brain in the article…

what did you think?

Where else will you find such insights
The best swimmers have an uncanny ability to submerge their head…

Was that article supposed to be a joke or sarcastic? Like was said, no science in that... :|

The writer of that article has too much water on the brain. His thought process is muddled.

Maybe swimmers' brains have a different stream of consciousness.

I've met many non-swimmers who sometimes they complain about the monotony of going back and forth.

On the contrary I find doing repeats and working with the pace clock very calming (as do most every swimmer I know).

Maybe we should all be tested for ADD?

Does that mean he's not ready to swim in the deep end? :)
