    Will you wear your bodysuits in USMS meets then or have you 'made the switch' to jammers for the future?

    Pat,
    I plan to wear the fastest legal suit (reasonably priced) in each meet I swim.
    So I'll probably wear a B70 or some other full body suit at the 2010 USMS SCY Nats.
    How about you?

    Ditto. I bought a new B70 full leg before Rowdy Gaines that I'll wear at a meet in mid-March and at Nationals. I'll wear a mixture of jammers, an older B70 and an older FS Pro for all other "in-season" meets. I'll switch to jammers at a USA-S meet in LCM that I'll likely swim the weekend after Atlanta.

    on last one, I dove & did 250 straight fly kick with no board,
    went 3:02
    Nice, was that on stomach or back? If on stomach, do you skull to breathe? if so, how many SDK between breathing?

    hey pat,
    come swim in the Austin Grand Prix

    RTodd,
    that 250 kick was on my side,
    left arm down, right arm up,
    arms at my side,
    2 right arm pulls into each wall to set up turn,
    long streamline glides off each wall but no SDK,
    to breathe: I just turn my head to the side & breathe like I'm taking a freestyle breathe, but no scull.
    I usually breathe every other kick
