    Boo, oh well there are always other days - annoying to have picked a bad one though! At least you've had a good day this year, I'm still waiting for one and I've got some silly race in Mallorca next weekend that's getting in the way of doing more races at the moment.

    Get faster so you aren't the slowest in the medium lane!

    Seriously though when I was between lanes I'd pick the quieter of the two, and if in te fast lane keep an eye out for people leaving the medium lane and move down there or if there was an increase in the fast lane and you're still the slowest move down.

    The reality is that if you're still improving it will only be a phase and you won't have the problem for too long!

    I had my first adult swim lesson a couple of weeks ago - was really useful to both be able to ask questions about my technique and have a few small pointers on things to improve has probably speeded me up by a couple of seconds per 100m

    I think lessons are a better option than a clinic - people always seem to come away with far too much to think about to be able to make any meaningful change!

    actually one final final question does the trip suit include a number pocket thing or is that additional?

    the only thing I'll comment on is there's no mention of training with anyone else - I'd go bonkers/never really push myself unless I train with others at least once per week!

    and comfortable - I do think the pad in the castelli is pretty decent...

    I think I know the answer to this, but my castelli bodypaint 3 has fallen apart and wiggle has agreed to replace/refund, they don't have it in stock anyway till late may/june, so either need to go elsewhere or consider other options, and I wondered if the quality/robustness of the nopinz offerings is better and they are as fast/faster?

    I guess the trip suit is probably the one to go for, and i'd probably get a speedpocket fitted to a new castelli anyway so financially there's not a tonne in it.

    then theres the problem that i'm a size medium waist and hips but size large chest..
