Thanks everybody, I very much appreciate it.

Just a point of reference. I did my first, second, third... triathlons at basically the 25yard limit. It wasn't necessarily pretty, but can be done! Lots of people do it, too.

Quick update - I was right...

3.20.14 I was anxious about a sprint triathlon. I remember it well. It was 600yards and it took me 11 minutes and I was in a state of panic the whole time. I was kicked in the chest, I about...

There was an inspirational blind woman at my Ironman at the end of June! Amazing. I didn't run across her until the run, but my family told me about her afterward. It reminds me that many of our...

First Mile!!

Continuous 1k last week in an OWS.

This morning 1900yds doing drills. Woohoo!

I think that leaves just one more gold start to go! 1 mile continuous!

Thought experiments!

So an engineer walks into a swimming discussion...

I love the idea of resonance frequency and definitely appreciate this thread! I want to offer another view, or perhaps it's just restating much of...

Thoughts on breaking the 25yd mental hurdle?

I'm a newbie swimmer, but am making great strides. I've been up to 1600yds in the pool, 25yds at a time. Even in a 200yd set, I popup at each end, turn and go again.

Something in me is now...

Thanks!

I'm closing in on my first broken mile :-) I like the idea of multiple gold stars.

My longest single session so far is 1225 yards. I'll take a gold star for that one!

When can I claim my first mile?

Is it a workout that totals a mile or is it one continuous mile swim? Inquiring minds want to know! :-)

Congrats!

I'm a fan of setting a goal and using it for motivation. Using your OWS triathlon has clearly pushed you for a very fast progression! Congrats again!

I hope to say the same soon. :-)

I think I'll mention that to my coach. I already explained that while I'm an engineer and love to understand and think things through, that when I did my evaluation for him, I was more like a scared...

Thanks and followup from my new coach eval

Thanks for the responses and warm welcome to the forum!

I hear what you are saying about the easy breathing out. Air helps with balance. I'll try work on that, or mention my thoughts to my coach...

Thanks, but...

I'm glad I'm not the only over-thinker... I did read in one of these forum posts that people drawn to TI are intellectually curious. So perhaps we tend toward being analytic?

Tony, you mention...
