    Did you swim around the corner each lap Mick?

    Maybe, if you swam as bad as me Blair you'd be claiming it as well, lol

    Ratty i'm trying to be, want to knock 30-60sec of my swim at Caloundra on Sunday, I dont want to be out of the water any more then 2min behind the guy I need to beat, he's a bloody fish.

    Cheers

    You're going unreal Ratty, but I think having a dolphin tattoo should disqualify you.........

    Another 3 points today. Felt like I should have earned more points than that -it was hard work today.

    On a positive note took another second off my 200 PB - 3:58 now.
