Quick detour: I had a funny experience at the pool today.
I turned into a bit of a fatass from Chinese New Year's and today was the first day back to training full time. I get to the pool and there is an oji-san sidestroking. I hop in to do my front crawl work and 200 meters in I notice the oji-san is considerably faster than I am. I'm talking 1.5-2x my speed.
So naturally in my fattied up, retarded state I think "wow I digressed a lot" and just pushed myself harder, trying to catch the oji-san. After about 500 meters I stopped to clear my mask, and only then did I notice he had fins on.
(But, in trying to catch the oji-san, I pushed myself faster, cut my stroke count by 1/3, and found that I could work at a level I thought I was a month away from.)
Which brings me to my question. I was gifted a Atlantis mask, and I've been playing around with it a bit, but I can NOT for the life of me get it to fit. I tried tightening it and taping it down, but it still leaks. If I let it out a bit, the mask is ripped off my face from the drag when I push off the wall.
How do I get it to not leak? Is it perhaps too big? Too small? Is it my face?
