    Hi Chris, I want to thank you for your short and sweet video! I am not a TRI person, I am swimmer who has come back after 40 years away…2 years ago and found that I have had to dramatically change all my strokes since then.I am now competing and have done well except ..I am slow for my expectations. My biggest problem is fear of competing…I had a wicked, nasty coach who yelled at me ( when young and i competed for 11 years at a very high level)…and i am hearing impaired …LOL! I simply cannot get the negative things out of my brain….and I compete best when someone pisses me off! Last time I competed…my mates had to pry my hands off the steering wheel of my car to go to the pool! your video has brought a lot of things I should do…and simplified the keywords for me. Now, I need a way to work on my endurance being the speed bomb I am ..and, not to overthink. I am an excellent swimmer now but not “perfect”…and I will think of those words before I get into the pool again! Thanks for speaking clearly also…!
