  • It is indeed tiring. My mother's explanation was that it stresses a lot of muscles that never get touched during normal regular-effective-gravity exercise, although I couldn't guess the truth of that.

    I've always liked just floating in a pool, staring at the sky or the roof. Lap swimming always seemed so...wasteful, somehow. Wasteful of good relaxation time.

    You are what you think.
  • There'd better not be a thin film of
    HCl on you (never mind that is has a
    low boiling point/vapor pressure).
    It's only used to adjust the pH as
    necessary; urea is basic afterall ;-).
    There might be something else in the
    water, or your're jut not used to it.
    Never washed up as a kid, though we had
    our own pool. Public pools tend to use
    *way* too much chlorine. So if you're
    blonde, you probably want to get in the
    habit of at least rinsing your hair.

    • I used to be on swim team and wound up with green straw instead of hair one summer due to the chlorine and not rinsing after 4 hours in the pool every morning. Always rinse your hair.

      The worst part of public pools is the snotballs on the bottom of the pool. :)/P.

        Yeah that and the water getting mysteriously warmer as you swim by someone :-)
