Great stuff, TI.
I think the most important factor in my still being able to swim and enjoy competing is that for 50 years I have been active in some form of athletics. I had to give up running distances when my Dr advised that I was wearing out the protective cartiledge in my right knee which had be damaged in several other sporting activities. Moving to swimming was the best move of my life and finding TI really has added many demensions. From my experience I would advise do not take extended layoffs unless forced to by uncontrollable circumstances.
