I'm a beginning (and really struggling!) swimmer. When I take my goggles off, I have raccoon-like suction marks around my eyes. That leads me to think the goggles are too tight. But I've also had the goggles on not tight enough, and ended up with water in my goggles. That kind of threw me off my entire workout. Prior to getting out of the pool after my last swim, I adjust the straps so they were a little looser. It felt like they were snug enough, and during a few test dunks no water got into my goggles.
Am I worrying needlessly? Is it normal for goggles to be so tight they leave marks? Or is this just one of those matters of personal preference: people like me who really don't want water in their eyes wear them tighter than people who are less squeamish.
Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.
