Didn't know what section to put it in but hope this is the right section!
Was just wondering is it possible to wear a nose clip on this or do you fail if you cant swim without holding your nose,ive been trying to swim without holding my nose but it stings everytime i swim underwater?

you'd probably have the piss ripped out of you a bit by the corprals but you probably can wear it, but probably wouldnt be allowed in any battle swiming tests.

Hi ZRJace,

From the point of a crap swimmer like I was and probably still am, get a pair of goggles. They make it a lot easier to go under the water and still concentrate on your technique.

But try your best to get it sorted beforew going into RT, the last thing you want is to be doing extra swimming in your free time to catch up to the other guys.

Trust me, as with all things in life practise makes perfect.
And after a while it DOES actually stop hurting, I used to have the problem :bigsmile:

i wouldnt suggest wearing a nose clip to be honest,

its only a bit of a sting at most, jsut put up with it, thats going to be the least of your worries on the prmc to be honest.

and also i fail to see how you can swim a lap of the pool breaststroke whilst holding your nose, surely yoru jsut going to be doing tiny little circles?
