    Thanks!

    (If the pace clocks were digital, I would have less worry - those I could see. No glasses and all I'm good for is watching the second hand spin.)

    Have you ever tried the prescription goggles? My daughters (-11/12 diopters!!!!) used them before they got contacts. They work very well.

    I've thought about prescription goggles, briefly. It's not bad enough that I can't see the end of the pool, or my own watch, or the big numbers on the analog pace clocks. But big digital pace clocks would be easier.

    Jack, how is that shoulder now? Having a similar problem here.

    It went away eventually. Never had a recurrence. Maybe I got over-protective and never went that hard on it again. All sorts of things get achy every time I do butterfly, but I have such poor technique I should just avoid it altogether.

    Fly is hard. I have a friend I lap swim with. About 15 years ago she did tri-events and learn to swim as adult. She has been swimming about 2 to 3 days a week around 1,500 to 1,800. yards a week. She has difficulty with fly too.
