Thrilled to hear you are into swimming RR
I have a niece who won a silver and bronze at the last commonwealth games, and swam in the olympics, but didn't do so well.
Competitive swimmers eat SHIT loads !!!!!!!
I swam a lot as a kid, but not since, i so need to get back into it !!!!!!
In fact the olderI get the more chance of winning something !!!!!!! In my age group !!!!!!!! LOLOL

Well, I should state that while I had three records (plus took part in at least one, maybe two relay records) at my school, we didn't have a pool and instead swam at a sort of local retirement home. Their pool was 5 meters too short and didn't have start platforms lol. Sooooo we as a whole weren't very good. I'm still proud of it though, considering. Our pool here is actually pretty nice, dive platforms, good lighting, a hot tub, and a sauna. When it's open!
I would be super suspicious of and sort of military style training. They tend to do it poorly and loudly, which is a surefire way to break people in my experience. Now a big dog and good music? That I can get behind. Best sprint workouts I've ever had have been chasing puppies. X33
And I bet I could fix that, or at least help. I'm a sinker (or neutral buoyancy more technically, though I can sit on the bottom of a pool while still holding some breath) myself, and I do fine while in motion.
Cracking up at the age group competitions! Wait 'til we're all in our 80s. Oh gosh, she lifted a dessert spoon - and the winner is...
