Three of us took our wetsuits to the pool today, put them on, and swam in them. Andie looked very efficient and athletic, but she should probably get another suit with a little room for growth.
The session was partly to learn how to put the DeSoto suits on efficiently, partly to check the fit, and partly to practice swimming in them. My wetsuit is too tight: it took me about 40 minutes to put it on, and that was with getting into the water and trying to get some water between me and it. I don’t know if it was the wetsuit technology or my iron supplements, but I was consistently faster than usual.
Coach Kelvin supervised and gave us some easy workouts. Distance, about 500 yards.
