Heard the following via Ed Gendreau and Guy Davis, whose masters team just recruited a world class swimmer from Auburn University, which has a legendary sprint program.

The new swimmer told Ed that whenever anyone on the team complained, they were told they "might try putting a little Triactin on that."

(As in, "Try actin' like a man for a change.")

Addendum, 11/23/11: I had been planning to steal that line for use at my local gym. But I just found out that this Auburn guy is now in training to be a Coast Guard rescue swimmer, one of those guys who jumps from a helicopter into stormy seas to rescue others. Now I sorta feel like I ought not to be using the line.
