    OMG I can relate.
    It hasn't been so bad in recent years, (a benefit of age, or just luck, I'm unsure) but for many years it seemed like I could not go to a gym without at least one 20-ish "expert" (in his own mind) telling me that what I was doing was doing me no good and was likely to injure me. As if this isn't annoying enough, not one of these "experts" ever asked me what I was trying to accomplish. It was actually so bad that for years I would not go to a gym. I still prefer just doing drylands in my basement.

    I suspect they take one look at me and since I'm really skinny, assume that I am trying to "bulk up" and know absolutely nothing about exercise. After I would prove to be a lost cause, they would invariably go try to "educate" some woman.
    OK, rant over.

    Re: Getting my swim strength after back injury

    Ha! Thanks Karl. I was really annoyed by this guy who reminded me of the out of shape chubby lineman from my HS football team. When they got in trouble, their coach made them swim laps and he was dying after just one lap.

    I was just complaining to a fellow swim girl I met at the swim store today.
    Turns out she goes to my gym, we just go at different locations, and she is going to meet me tomorrow and see what my form looks like and give me some advice. Something tells me I’m sagging something in my back or gut when I swim?

    And I just noticed auto correct changed psyche to psycho!
    even though for me, there isn’t much difference!
