Just a recovery swim today. I was predictably sore after yesterday's chute-ing. Should have foam rolled last night! Thanks to Frank (fdotten), I bought some small agility paddles. Previously, I had only found the medium size ones. The smaller size will make my shoulders happier and hopefully I can use them with the evilstroke.

    Hurray for you! Soon to be User of small agility paddles. I hope they work better as needed.

    Generally I would think the average noodler would have low expectations of what a person can do in the water.

    It was hysterical. I laughed, but he kept pressing about it. Noodlers are so funny sometimes. I actually had one try to correct my backstroke the other day ...

    Noodlers tend to think any masters swimmer is an Olympian.

    I like my medium size paddles just fine for free and back. But I think the smaller ones will be more useful and perhaps safer for my dodgey shoulder.

    Ha! The noodlers often ask me if I swam in college... the real ex-college swimmers just kick my ***. It's all a matter of perspective!

    Just nod and take the compliment! Otherwise, you might make them feel worse.
