Yurtie, my online coach and advisor from Australia, says to keep at it and pretty soon I'll be feeling like Susie O'Neill in the pool. He may be delusional, but those delusions sound pretty good to me. Except I hope that doesn't mean he's planning for me to learn the butterfly. Good luck in the Canberra Half Ironman on December 11th, Yurtie! We'll be cheering for you!
We watched the DVD March of the Penguins tonight - compelling drama, and beautifully filmed! And if three-foot-high birds with that much body fat can swim so well, surely I should be able to, right?
