Why do I have to be fat?
I swim so much better (easier) when I am at a weight well above where I would like to be. I have played with it. Drop ten or fifteen pounds....comfort and fatigue become an issue. Gain ten or fifteen and gain the shape of Fernando Valenzuela...and I’m cruising along just fine. What the heck?! Why can’t I be a beefcake AND a marathon swimmer?? ?
