As I gave the green light for approval for the launch announcement e-news I had the giddy nerves and excitement of my first marathon swim. And then I remembered my first state team, my first Australian team, my first American Record, my first World Race Record, my first World title…..
…and once again I acknowledged that I had a winning formula and stuck to it.
If it ain’t broken it doesn’t need fixin!
How many in your open water swimming pursuits are always looking for the perfect race, the perfect technique, the perfect training program, the perfect preparation?
How bout the perfect swimsuit, cap, goggles, goggles cleaner? And how many of us are focused on what everyone else is doing, taking, wearing, eating, drinking, feeding, planning?
That is why I created Open Water Swimming Mastery.com. We lose focus on the hours invested in planning and preparation and the tracking progress reports because we’re too busy trying to fix something that ain’t broken!
