Wolff -

I happened to go again myself, on Tuesday... and I got down to a 32.08
best lap. The odd thing was that my heat was much slower than the first
time I went: I was second fastest here, where I'd been third to last the
last time.

A friend came along again and was slower by a second or so, and I asked
the guy there about how much weight affects your speed. He said the
fastest people weighed around 150 (my weight, coincidentally) but he
didn't think weight was a huge factor, maybe 0.1s per 10 lbs or so. I'd
be interested to see how we all would do if we carried enough ballast to
be equal.

We've got to have another get-together at SpeedRing!
