    Wait, you can actually PULL a 200 breast in 2:42?! How is that even possible. Are you using a dolphin kick and getting some propulsion from that? I doubt that I could pull a 200 br in 4:00. No kick = no movement for me in breast.

    That would be tough but we did backstroke pull, not breaststroke. I have done breaststroke pull in the past with paddles and no buoy... br kick included of course. Not sure if I could make 2:42 though.

    Oh I see. I was reading without my eye glasses. Still very solid swimming, but at least believable. Carry on...
