Sucking Does Have Its Advantages...

When you suck as bad as I do at swimming, there is no where to go but up. And that is encouraging in some sick and twisted way. I met Bobby and James at the pool for my 3rd session this morning. We put in about a 30 minute workout and it seemed to go better than the last. As long as I keep improving, everything is going to be just fine. The problem will be if I reach a certain point and still suck and I haven't even done the triathlon yet. Then we will have some issues to work out.

1/2 mile = 880 yards or 7.3 complete football fields

or 35.2 lengths in the pool

or even better... 17.6 laps in the pool

It's all in the way you look at things.
