Nah...the sinus infection hung on a little longer than I'd hoped. I'll try to give it a go this weekend, I'm up in St. Louis and I've got a 50-meter pool I can use. So I may do it there.

OK E...this afternoon I went again. Post-workout (swim), in a drag suit:
15:36.52

Still a bit of room to drop.

I think I might give this one a go in the near future. I've messed around with some 25 yard underwaters (w/o fins) as a half-aborted attempt to prepare myself for PJ indoc, and so far I've only actually made it three or four times. But that was months ago. Let's see what Crossfit has done for me.

Don't expect anything outstanding from me here, but I figured I'd join all you studs and give you a little self-confidence boost. :biggrin:

David - Don't make the mistake of thinking that if you can't make it all the way that you are hopeless. You'll be slow for awhile and you might not even make it the whole way for awhile but improvement comes quickly. Use a bit of caution though and realize that shallow water blackout is not outside the realm of reality. If you start to get tunnel vision or see sparkles surface immediately. Don't let the times Matt and Eric post scare you. My best seems to be hovering around 11:30 now, getting below 10 seems super human to me.

The first time I did it I was getting a lot more recovery between 25s. This time I just decided to go as soon as I though I'd make the 25 (whether is was comfortable or not). That resulted in a much faster time.

Thanks for the tips Eugene. I'm not in this as any sort of contest between those two nuts over there, more of a personal challenge to see if I can do it.

Does anyone have any technique tips for underwaters sans fins? So far I've been concentrating on staying as relaxed as possible, eyes on the bottom of the pool, and pulling with my arms in a breastroke motion. Using the legs seems to induce more drag than its worth in O2 consumption.

Dave, you gotta have a good strong whip kick (frog) to do the underwaters w/o fins properly.
