>From http://www.hydramotion.com/Units_of_viscosity.html, treacle is
about 20,000 times more viscous than water. Calculating Reynolds number
(guessed density of treacle as 1500 kg/m3, don't have a reference) and
based on a person's height of 2m, in water it's 2.7e06 and in treacle,
it's 210. The viscous effects have a much much more significant effect
than the in the case detailed in the link.
Also, it didn't take into account the fact that the body may compensate
by providing more force to the muscles. You'd have to monitor heart rate
etc. and monitor lap times over 10 lengths or something.
